Re: Wars and campaigns that were largely ignored by FPS's
Part of it might be down to the target market of the games. For gamers in Europe the conflict with Nazi Germany is more prominant than say the war against the Empire of Japan.
But you could do a WWII game set in N. Africa with things like the 2nd Battle of El-Alamein, the Torch landings, the landings in Scilly and in Italy.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
