I for one am tired of constant base building in games (starcraft, AOE, and most other rts games). Every new map you do you have to make a new base. I like having one persistant base that makes units at and sends them out to do quests(or missions for singleplayer). Thats why I'm a fan of the blitzkreig series, you don't make any bases, you get a fixed amount of units to use and a limited amount of reserves to call in. The persistant homecity is actually the main reason I like DOF.
Have you ever played Panzers: Phase one? You do absolutely NO base building, you just choose your units and do battle until they all die! Also it is very realistic (overheating tanks causes the crew to run out and fight, you can actually see fights going on in buildings, etc.). I also think it is quite old.
