Throw in the possibility to control every unit in battle like in Men Of War or something, and you literally have the game to end all games.
Also game to end all disk space.
Also have it progress through the ages, so you start off being I dunno, some nobody Socotran count stuck in Mali and by the end of it all are paradox interactering in a space colony
Actually, you should start out in a Cave wielding stone tools, but yeah awesome!

I think the word you were looking for is "monster".

Start out before tribes have even formed as a line of hunter-gatherers, settle down and reform into a feudal society or get civilized by Egyptians, Persians, Indians, Chinese or Greco-Romans and then progress onwards until the fall of Rome with barbarians and then into ck2 timeline
Increase potential game time from 1,400 years to 60,000 years

The "hunter-gatherer" phase would be totally the fastest one though. Also the whole game would take so damn long time.

Start as a mass of undifferentiated cells in the oceans before the evolution of complex lifeforms, evolve into humans over time then develop society.

Increases playtime to at least 2 billion years.  :P (Also would probably be a better Spore than Spore was.)

It'd be amazing if refusing to reform your primordial soup into feudal symbiosis or multicellular organisms was a viable strategy, so you could play for billions of years and end up with the scenario where Nazi Germany and the mutable volcano pool wage war on the slime collective and the Holy Roman French Republic of Israeli West African reformed paganism

I belive it never even tried to be life simulator, just an arcadey game that could sell in modern times. But instead we got broken hopes and tears.

Only the Aryan cells will be allowed to survive. Irradiate the rest.

Bugger that; sentient dinosaur people.

Perhaps even silicon-based lifeforms! Eliminate the unclean carbon infidels!

Abbasids have been kind-of (they still exist in Persia and the bit between Arabia and India, non-inclusive) replaced by the Mubarakids in my most recent game.

It's amusing that they declare Jihad on the Byzantines, usually win, then the Catholics usually declare a Crusade for the bits they win (unless I demand other bits in Africa/Middle East instead) so Constantinople is now Scottish Catholic.

Once in Spore I completed the cell stage with some ugly basic parasites (was trying to evolve as little as possible).
"Okay now give your creature legs!"
"What if I... don't?"

My race of blobs with parasitic needle-snouts wriggled their way through the animal stage...  about 3 feet off the ground.  I died a *lot*, which just made them nastier when they got to space.  (I think I added poison dart launchers to get through the stage)

Spore wasn't exactly what we wanted but it was quite fun if you forgot what it could be.
I remember gliding for really long distances from the volcanoes. It was kinda fun.
