This is purly a guess, but from a reality point of view it might have more to do with the size of the crew needed to run the ship. Once you get above a destroyer size ship, It probably isn't realistic to think that one player at a keyboard can manage all of the functions that have to take place at one time to do just about anything. Try this one for size, you're on an convoy escort, a lookout spots a scope closing in, here we go:
Watch Officer - helm and speed orders
Watch Engineer - respond to speed orders
ASW Officer - oversee weapons
Gunnery Officer - manage the main director
CIC officer - put it all on paper
This doesn't include all of the enlisted men who make it all happen.

Also, for the most part I don't think cruisers, battleships and carriers operated on their own anyway. Controlling an American task force of 30 ships would probably require so much reliance on game AI it wouldn't be much fun anyway.

If they do bring out a Battleship version of SH3 - I'm not sure I want anything to do with the Crew Management http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
