I don't think Knights of Honor has that depth of detail!
Crusader Kings is all about depth of detail. Remember: you play a character and, more extensively, a dynasty. When you throw armies around you are actually giving orders to those armies. War, BTW, can be both costly and unrewarding. Better to marry the right dude/dudette with a son in line for the throne and then kill such son so that your son will become the next heir. Good luck at not getting caught, though.
Some people have more fun playing with a "Lunatic, possessed ruler, suffering from bloodlust but also being a coward", that with more sensible individuals. The supernatural elements, BTW can be mere superstition or can be real, according to the option you choose at the beginning of the game. Keen players can spot lovecraftian easter eggs...
CK2 is basically Game of Thrones - and the GoT megamod is, "de facto" GoT for PC. Some people actually buy CK2 and its expansions to play with that Mod, not in our Middle Ages.
"Yes darling, I served in the Navy for eight years. I was a cook..."
"Oh dad... so you were a God-damned cook?"
