...When did I say anything about complexity? Complex characters are good, yes, but that has nothing to do with what I was saying.
I said that I get annoyed when people say 'this is the way it was in history, so the game should be like this, too'. The game doesn't have to take any inspiration at all from history, so saying 'this is how things really were' is pointless. It's no more valid than any other crazy idea anyone else comes up with.
And I specifically didn't single anyone out on that first comment, so I never said you did anything in particular. It's the people who insist 'historically accurate is better' that I take issue with.
