No pause - so it's Real-Time but there isn't much Strategy

Summary: I have no idea why anyone who produces an RTS wouldn't provide a pause key enabling you to select units reliably and issue orders. Perhaps EA do, because they didn't. Or maybe they just forgot.
Summary: Overall a poorly laid out game. For each good level like Moria, Helm's Deep and Minas Tirith, there's about 5 other bland, flat areas with no substance or usefullness in the game. They contribute nothing to the story, or anything else for that matter.
Summary: If your a fan of the LOTR series than this game is for you. All you more hardcore RTS players might want to spend your fifty bucks elseware. Fun factor I gave this game 3 stars. Keep in mind my judgement is a little bias, I am a fan of LOTR. The campaign is a blast whether you are evil or good.
Summary: I'm not a kid writing a review but a 29 year old who has played more computer games in the last year then most do in a life time. Not putting down the young but this game is clearly geared toward a younger generation. Why?
