Agreed, in fact there were so many elements I liked about AO3, the Explorer for example, and how you could use cards to enhance them, or build up a retinue around them. It was a lot of fun that game, and the map creator and triggers were relatively simple to get to grips with too so you could make your own campaigns, which I did. Real shame they never did a fourth one. I went to reply AOE3 a couple of years ago, but sadly I couldn't get into it again, maybe I'll give it another go sometime.
