Call of Duty and the early Medal of Honors and it's other followers made WW2 sorta overused. But remember that 2 paragraphs in your textbook named World War 1? I am asking you if this would be a great setting for a game.
Trench warfare.

It's boring.
I'd like to see it used more.
I think it's a great setting for a board game.

You don't like tower defense?
Maybe a game about the Christmas truce? A football game.

What about the 1 (if any) sentence devoted to the Korean War?
There is still fun to be had with WWII.

Because kids would be asking, "Where are the Koreans?"

The south would be getting their ass kicked by the Chinese and the North would be getting their ass kicked by the US :P
The take on WWI Double Fine did with Trenched was awesome.
I know I was a little confused as a kid. I didn't know why we didn't just call it the Chinese War since that was who we were fighting. I did love how the Army asked the Marines for all of the equipment that had been left behind in the Army's retreat. The Marines who had salvaged the gear and then smashed a Chinese force 8 times its size simply shrugged, "What equipment?" all while driving old jeeps with fresh emblems.

Well, the Chinese were neutral until MacArthur finally provoked them into invading. And we didn't learn jack crap about fighting against guerrillas and irregulars, since we made the same damn mistakes in Vietnam, getting more than 50,000 Americans killed in each war for no benefit other than becoming known as an international bully.

Technically, the Korean War is not over, since South Korea never signed the armistice. But apart from the battles of attrition while the diplomats were pretending to talk peace, it featured a number of wide-open sweeping campaigns that could well be dramatized in games.

Real WW1? No.

Alternate history WW1? I imagine trenches mixed with crazy alt-history stuff would be pretty fun.

Kicking our asses in an early early early alpha of Star Craft!
It would be awesome, tbh. Very few games use WW1 as the setting. Especially if the events happen somewhere in Eastern Europe, like here on the Balkans.
