yeah - and that's a part of the fundamental differences in the play styles. In Paradox games you have to relinquish control and more so as your holdings grow, whereas in Civ type games you get to micromanage every unit and tile on the map, that you control, throughout. For me that becomes just too repetitive when your empire has more than a handful of cities.

Interestingly Jon Shafer (Civ 5 designer) launched a recent kickstarter for his new project "At The Gates" and discussed some of these micromanagement issues in the updates. Will be interesting to see how this turns out too.
