I would say that the problem with increasing complexity in a 4X-game is that the potential yields also become more complex during the game. In the first part of the game every decision is somewhat balanced. By the end game the player has learnt how to multiply some aspect of the game that pays off extremely well over time. And as you are now too strong, none of your actions matter that much. But the micro managment has also increased creating a dull and unrewarding situation. Therefor you might as well congratulate yourself and start a new game.
