The modern-day battlefield includes far more than application of force - but what I had specifically in mind was politics. Do the whims of the politicians back home have any effect on their forces in the field or is BFE simply a WWII-style game with modern equipment and forces? Large-scale pitched battles aren't that common anymore (particularly when the battlefield is absent of civilians) and I don't see that changing in 10-15 years. So how about some politicking rules and effects, civilians as well? Or perhaps save it for a later expansion or another game altogether?
