Are governments too similar? It doesn't seem like what government I pick doesn't have any effect on the result of the game, as opposed to where I put my cities, which districts I build or if I keep my promoted units alive. I can count on going oligarchy if playing MP, or Classical Republic in SP, follow by a rather obvious second choice based on if I have more faith or gold. I would not mind if they brought back anarchy as a penalty when you change governments and the government type give you a distinct boost in some category - war, science, fath, gold, growth. etc.
