  •  My impression... (0+ / 0-)

    was that it was dropped because the implementation was... grossly inadequate. Religion had a slight effect, but largely just played out as a complete side story with no real impact. (I once played, intent on pushing "my" religion out and creating an almost universal faith. And that didn't seem to matter to anything in the game, even though I succeeded in that objective.) Which is so ahistorical that yanking it was a better choice.

    Delicate subjects need NOT to be avoided. They need to be treated delicately, and very well.
