Summary: There are a few things one does not do: walk into Mordor, for example, or fight a land war in Central Asia. A reasonable addition to this list would be: don't wait 6 years before producing an expansion. Yet this is what the developers of “Spell Force 2: Faith in Destiny” (SF2:FID) have done.
Conclusion: Creating an expansion pack for a six-year-old game is one of the most curious things I've ever seen a developer do, and I've been covering games for a while now.
