  1. Good read, but I've got two nitpicks for the BFME1 entry: 1: BFME1 was not slightly expanded with book content - in fact, during development, EA had to constantly make sure that everything they did was based on the films rather than the books, because they did not have a book license. Fun fact: for BFME2, when the book license had been acquired, they had to make sure everything they did was based solely on the Lord of the Rings (rather than The Hobbit or other works), resulting in the main dragon being called Drogoth rather than Smaug and a map that was supposed to be Laketown renamed to Celduin River. 2: Each faction did not necessarily have one of each unit. Rohan did not technically have a pikeman unit (though sword-wielding Elves were eventually made strong vs. cavalry) and Mordor did not have a cavalry unit. They had Mountain Trolls, which in some ways were similar (ie. they trampled enemy units) but were much slower and had different strengths (siege and splash damage), and different weaknesses (arrows rather than pikes).
