You're talking about a much longer game, but completely lost by Axis by middle of 1943.
Pacific War December 41 - August 45 = almost 4 years and lost to the Axis in June 42 (6 months) if indeed it was not lost on day 1.
Battle of the Atlantic September 39 - May 45 = almost 6 years and lost to the Axis March 1943 (I assume you are taking the battles for convoy SC122 and HX229 as the climax of that battle) (3.5 years).
In my opinion, for what its worth, the appeal of the Pacific War is that if you are interested in the naval war you get to "play" with great carrier fleets and their aircraft, the biggest battleships (Iowas and Yamatos etc), the heavy cruiser engagements etc etc. The Pacific 1941/1942 is just so interesting - ABDA, The Indian Ocean Raid, Coral Sea, Midway, the whole Guadalcanal campaign - I love reading about this period.
That said, in response to the OP, yes I would love a properly done Battle of the Atlantic game. Depends how its done but it could be an excellent game and of course would present a very different, but nonetheless interesting game, compared to WITP-AE.
However, my greatest wish would be for a properly done Meditteranean War game. How easily that could be done I don't know given the problems that some of the other posters have mentioned - but for a balanced game where there is a real possibility of either side winning - then the Med certainly provides this.
