Civilization III or II.  I personally wasn't a fan of Civ IV.

The French under Louis, or the Indians under either leader.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

In the Civilization game, you have to choose a people, and a leader. That's what KS meant. I don't know which Civ version he's referring to though, probably IV.

No idea, but you could try ;)
People here seem to think it is. If you don't know, you could download it, try it, and if you like it, buy it.

I'm playing Civ IV patched to 1.62 or whatever. I find that when I go to war, I need to have about twice the strength of my enemy due to fortification bonuses (entrenchment and walls)
That's why bombarding defenses with siege weapons is extremely important in Civ IV.

This is like real life. You can't just storm a castle with a bunch of guys, because they can't walk through walls. Properly fortified defensive positions require more manpower to overwhelm; that's the point of them.

Use siege weapons, reduce their bonuses (and maybe do damage to them too), then attack.

I seem to recall the old PC game Maelstrom having a lot (toomuch) politics. Note this is a game from the 1999 era, not the one that came out in 2007. I should see if it is on the abandonware sites.

Hearts of Iron 2 was an incredible game if you want to run a country. It is very war oriented though( It takes place from the time rihgt before WW2, 1936, to the time after it, 1950ish. You can take control of virtually any nation that existed during that time and play with them throughout that time. Its pretty realistic, but tedious at times. I would highly suggest playing that game.
By the time you finish reading this signature, I've gotten into your house, stolen your t.v., and re-decorated the place so that it fits with your hipster lifestyle.
