They are supposed to be lesser ppl, doing what they need to survive and be happy.
All I want is for contracted soldiers to properly soldier via the contract and training. A soldier and a guard are two different things, a soldier can guard things yet a guard is not a soldier. A soldiers jobs include deployments, guard duty, training, going on patrol, fighting etc...Without the ability to micro manage NPCs it is intriguing as to HOW we military leaders will command troops.../Yell ? Raising flags? Drums? The NPCs ability to learn and become more than just useful is exciting...but I dont know of any games where this works or has been done.
