Though i have to say... As bad ass as Napoleon is, Id rather focus more on the civil war so they better let me pick america in the next capmaign... it would be nice if they opened up more of the world and more countries, id like to play as some eastern countries too, especially the japanese... or even more of a challenge, i LOVE play as the native american tribes... rewrite history as how it SHOULD HAVE BEEN... but the past is the past...
You had the Italian wars of Unification, you had the Crimea war, you also had the Wars of German Unification, the 19 centuary is 1000x better than the 17th in my opinion. I agree Napoleon should span from 1799 to 1900 or somthing, however, I can only think that the detail would be lost.

I disagree. The 19th century was by far the most pacific century in world history. The philosophic emphasis on balance of power begun by Metternich kept European wars small and focused--even though it is ultimately responsible for creating the conditions whereby world war became an inevitability in the early 20th century. The Crimean War was only significant for its social impact in Britain. The wars of Italian and German unification occur across two or maybe three of ETW's provinces and were short and bloodless when compared to conflicts of the 17th and 18th century.
The 19th century is significant for European domination over Africa, India and Asia--not for game-worthy military conflicts.
I wouldn't want CA making a game focusing on anything but Europe--every game made by Euros, CA is a British company, that looks at anything else is supercilious in its overall treatment and infuriatingly generalized in its details. Look at the treatment of North America in ETW for evidence.
Whereas the 17th and 18th centuries saw almost endless war across the continent of Europe--from vast dynastic struggles to petty landgrabs--as well as the advance of science and technology to create a societal machine for war out of several countries in Europe.
Since ETW covers the 18th century, and NTW now covers the Napoleonic Wars...the only large-scale conflict in 19th century Europe...the obvious would be to look at the 17th century.
Typical English arrogance? Are you refering to Sharp911's comment? For a start, he's from Poland, secondly the word you're looking for is 'ignorance', and finally, that's a racist generalisation, so kindly stfu and go troll some where else.
