Well, when Generals first came out it did cause a stir because of the GLA was so similar to a certain terrorist group we were fighting overseas and still are this very day.
Games that are controversial always make headlines and turn out better in the end and a select few fail.
PC Police will always find something to complain about with any game in the industry past or present.
'Meh, I don't really care anymore about the new games direction, with many loads of hours(make that years actually) on Tib Sun, YR, Generals, CnC3, and RA3, plus all the mods they come with, another game with the same old formula is rather redundant IMO. '
I agree with everything that you say. However, as you stated, the developers can't curve towards the more offensive aspects (nobody at all should be religious - the terrorists screaming Allah akbar is unacceptable, and considering the way many parents are today, even "Allallallallah!" might be too controversial).
The thing is, certain parents get a bit outraged by violent video games, and no doubt there will be some retaliation once they realize the GLA's similarity to modern terrorist groups. I imagine Fox will rip on it too, though if the USA were a playable faction and the victor, they'd probably leave it alone (not saying they should switch to the USA for the main three factions; I like the EU idea).

Anyways in regards to political correctness yes religious overtones should be left out of the game just because it is a very touchy subject for people and most have very differing views. But censoring to the highest degree is unnecessary for 2 reasons in regards to shielding young children, (even though I am a teacher myself) I firmly believe parents should pay more attention to the rating system and different liners from ESRB before buying a game. Also it is completely impossible to satisfy literally every single person on the face of the earth therefore there is no sense in even bothering
