NOT Open-World. Something similar to Dynasty Warriors: Gundam. This featured beautiful semi-open world attributes while still having missions follow a given path in the map. Providing areas with having a general theme, while maintining a sub-variety in combat locations. Think of it as “Artifical Map Expansion”!
I think M.A.S.S Builder could benefit greatly from a mindset similar. This game simply has too much potential to waste on these small-scale skirmishes!
