Since they probably won't do it, the nearest thing is the mod: http://www.arcanestudios.net , we're working on a full conversion mod of AOM, named Legends of Middle Earth.

All of Tolkien's works. Our site has brief information and showcases, so check it out.

ES won't do it because they'd have to get the copyright, and it's too common a theme. Were there other reasons? I can't remember..

ES is for (partly:AOM) historiacal games not for 100% science fiction such as Tolkien.

I was in the HG forum for other games and saw a thread about Lord of the Rings: War of the Rings. It's supposed to ba an RTS made by the company that made Battle Realms. There are two threads in the forums, one with links.

Wouldn't this be more like Warcraft III that is out now?
