I win the game via Space Race and the world is still an interesting place. here is a chance to enjoy a slow, leisurely conquest of all the other civs using modern weapons of war. Yet when I fire up the game I find it hard to stay focused on that, I start thinking about launching a new game and trying again. I just finished a nice game as the Dutch. I never went to war and so there are four Civs to deal with still. All I have to think about is defeating them militarily -- fun! But all I can think about is playing again as Louis XIV France.
