E: DoTMW was a hugely underplayed game, and i loved it (despite the flaws) but the campaign was ok, i didn't find it all that great. Same wit EE, except it wasn't an underplayed game
I hope it will be better than those ones. Although i wouldn't be dissapointed if it simply reached the same level as those.
The AOE3 storyline was terrible and had little if any base in actual history
