1. No ability to play on past the scenario end time. Sure - tell me I achieved an objective or not ; but let me play on afterwards, even if there are no more scripted events or messages. I am old enough to know that I didn't win the scenario, but I did pay for this game so give me as much freedom to play it how I want even if it is not how you the designer think I should or must play.

2. No ability to replay some scenarios from the other side.

3. A game with a campaign and battles, but won't let you just play battles.

4. Not enough player options to bring about variety in scenarios, even if there isn't a half decent random scenario generator.

5.Games that have production, but won't let me turn it off.


When I look through my game collection (too many to count) many of them seem to just miss being the perfect game, or being a much better game by having some feature or restriction that need not be there.

Some examples:

Command Ops: needs scenario extension; more set up options or random scenario generator

Advanced Tactics - love the random scenario generator and supply system; hate that I can't turn off production.

Crown of Glory/Forge of Freedom - can't just play some battles

Try TOAW3. AFAIK, only #1 is its problem.
