{{The game had two basic playing modes, a strategic map and a tactical map for battles. I wanted to be able to save the game during a battle, since battles could take significant time. Again, I asked programmer S to do it. Programmer S flat out refused, saying it was too hard, and we shouldn't have the feature. It took me about a day's time to write.}}

This is one thing that would have improved the Total War series. Some battles could take hours when the armies fighting each other were large enough.
Overall, how much of game design is based on what is easier for the programmer?
