The game I really want to make, no one will ever buy.

Well, if it's a side project anyway, you may as well make what interests you. There are markets for niche grognard games, and even though the fan base is smaller, they tend to be more passionate (i.e. more willing to spend $$$).

On thing though, I would say you should add A.I.

1. With a deep hardcore game with a small player base, it will be hard to find people to play with.

2. Playing vs. the A.I. is a good way to learn the rules of a deep, complex game.

3. You'll make more sales, as lots of people love complex games they can play buy themselves: Civilization, Gal Civ, Alpha Centauri, etc.
