Ion, I agree with most of what you're saying:

Here's a game of sorts that could be sort of interesting (not an rpg, though)

There is also the game named "Intrique at Oakhaven plantation" from mystery.manor.net (again, not an rpg, though)

I agree with you that the novel by the authors you mentioned seem at first to
be about love and another trivial plots. Much like Victor Hugo's The Hunchback at Notre Dame at first seem to be about love and stuff, but really is about how the church doesn't want freedom of speech that challenges the church's authority.

I doubt that a game set in the 1750's or even in the 1850's would be able to make right now, if it indeed did include slavery etc.

It seems to me that many strategic games as well as many fighting games (FPS games) do take place during WWII. (some takes place during the WW1, other takes place during the Korean war, the Vietnam war). And some games takes
place during recent events such as Desert Storm, a certain even in Somalia,
and I have seen that the new game from Bethesda Softworks "Roque warrior" is set to take place in North Korea.

It it not that there isn't any games out there, who deals with politics; these
games just camouflage themselves, imo, as shooters, tactical combat games and such things. (imo).
