The one thing that has always kind of bothered me about RFC is that there is practically no end game. Even if you play beyond the last year, the modern Civs don't do nearly as much strategic engagement as they do in during the medieval/renaissance period. There are more (bloody) world wars during the renaissance then later on during the Industrial era. I hardly ever see anyone declare war and make effective use of a modern navy. Another thing you hardly see is a Roman (or Italian) empire using it's navy to maybe get it's hands in Northern Africa or the Middle East. (in other words little diversity amongst playthroughs) The modern era lacks any effective use of nuclear weapons and no civs fear a nuclear powered civ, almost like some civs don't acknowledge nuclear weapons even exist. Their air force never attacks during war and is only used to shoot down enemy assailants. I guess this isn't entirely RFC's fault since the end game of regular Civ IV is nearly the same. I think a few things could be fixed though. Does anyone else feel the same?
