Otherwise, the assets are present. Of course, that would require an analysis of the OOBs and starting territories of the different factions, and then a list of interesting events and options.

The subject is slightly obscure, but thanks to Total War Rome 2 people have actually heard of the reconquest.
But there are still quite a few things missing from the base game (e.g. provinces with mangled names or names in the wrong place on the map), and coming up with a package that also had high popular recognition wouldn't be that difficult.
Everybody has heard of Cleopatra, and what's missing from the game is a scenario that covers the civil war between Octavian and Antony.
The naval war leading up to Actium was fascinating, and didn't have to end up getting resolved in one climactic naval battle.
And having a scenario about Cleopatra would give you an excuse for an iconic box cover.

Philippe wrote:The Actium campaign was competitive. Antony thought he was about to invade Italy, and got suckered into leaving his army and fleet in an impossible logistical position on the southern side of the Ambracian gulf. Agrippa's fleet had a lot of light Liburnian galleys, and he proceeded to wage a guerilla war of attrition up and down the east coast of Greece against Antony's naval supply lines. Supplies ran out, cohesion dwindled, and Antony finally came to terms with the fact that he wasn't about to invade Italy and was sitting in the wrong place. Agrippa and Octavian won the battle of Actium before it even started, but the battle was a by-product of bad strategic decisions. If the campaign had been played differently the battle of Actium never would have happened, and a confrontation between the two forces when one of them wasn't already falling apart would have turned out differently.
