My problem with the game is that it insists that you play until the end. Which is very boring. A typical game using Continents will see me take out militarily every other civ on that continent, thus giving me 20 or so cities, against 3 or 4 remaining civs on the other continents. I am WAY ahead on score. I AM going to win. But it would take me another 20 hours or so of grinding just so I can say that I got the win. So I quit the game and start a new one. Why isn't it possible to win a game earlier, not just domination, but by score or culture or science, simply by being ahead. I can be 15 techs ahead of other civs, which should allow me to get the win (eventually), but why make me play it out?
