Rome and Star Wars seem to be tough to get right.

Awakening of the Rebellion mod for Star Wars Empire at War got it right.

Knights of the old republic 1 and 2 also.
Insert witty comment here.

Alright, so Imperator is on sale for $10, and the DLC bundle is another $13.  So for $23 total, is this worth picking up or not?  I'm assuming that development is not going to continue for the title (although possible I suppose).

Actually two questions:
Get the base game?
Get the DLC too?

Or just bag it?

The DLC are cheap right now on sale, except for the heirs of Alexander which having been just released is full priced.

However, unless you're planning on playing one of those factions, the DLC don't add much to the game -- I'm not totally sure the Epirus update even uses its new building and unit if you're playing as someone else for example.

But if you're planning on playing one of those factions, then you get some scripting events for your campaign which help the flavor out.

If you're planning on playing as Rome or Carthage, get the Punic Wars pack.

If you're planning to play as Athens, Sparta, or Syracuse, get the Magna Graeca pack.

If you're planning to play as the Ptolemics (Egypt), Antigonids (Asia Minor), or Selucids (Persia), get the new Heirs of Alexander pack.

If you're planning to play as Epirus (trying to stake out their claim to be a true Successor State), get the duh. ;)
