* CommandAndConquerEconomy -- Partially averted, partially justified. The player must order any construction project, that's pretty much the point of the game. You do not tell your settlers what to do and where to move though, you only set guidelines and they take care of everything else. Justified because of feudalism: everything in your kingdom is your property, so you call the shots.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard -- After the first level or two, it always has better troops than you do.
** Although this only applies in the campaign mode. In Free Play (aka Skirmish), the AI starts with the exact same resources as the player. Computer players don't have an infinite resource pool and will in fact run out of resources if they can't gather them.

* CopyProtection -- Notoriously in ''The Settlers 7'', as part of a humongous DRM program at Ubisoft. It was already bad on ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII'', but here, if your internet connection dropped out, it was an automatic quit. Thankfully, Ubisoft has since rectified this issue, so the internet is only required to boot the program. This is still a pain in the ass, but better than before.

* PainfullySlowProjectile -- In Settlers II, a catapult may fire on an enemy building, only for that building to have been captured by the player by the time the boulder lands, resulting in loss of the building to friendly fire.
