I know the whole point of this game is strategy. But after the first couple of turns, once you start 1HKO'ing the enemies, it's just gets really boring. I only played up to moderate, so I maybe missing something. But I played some games before where the AI plays it for you in an instant, although not as efficient as a human player. I really like the planet-hopping part of the game, the first few battles, and battling with the pirates, marauders and other AI's fleet. The other battles are just way too easy or boring especially when the enemy is just running away from you and winning is just inevitable. Anyone else wants a fast forward / quick battle button?
