    Classifying "Domination" as a fourth Affinity doesn't really make sense in my opinion. I guess you could classify it as a "subcategory" of the Affinities, because Empires that go for Domination have decided that their primary goal is to make sure they own the planet instead of focusing on the actual Affinity-related Goal, but it's not in itself an Affinity. Any Empire that focuses on conquering the planet still focuses on one or two Affinities that are the driving forces behind their motives, and I think it's pretty clear that they will go back to achieving their Affinity-Related goal after making sure they have full control of the planet, even though that's not reflected in the domination victory itself.
