Furthermore this is entirely out of character for Romulan norms. The Romulans believe that the strong should rule the weak. They challenge the federation because they appear weak (from the outside), then go away for a while when they are proven wrong by someone in a ship named Enterprise. They are too mindful of their own strength to ever allow anarchy.
This new plot line is the worst hack writing the trek universe has ever seen. If they go through with it I'll finally suspend all future purchases, even if that costs me my playable romulan.
Yes, this is disappointing, but remember that it wasn't Cryptic's decision to destroy Romulus, an event without which their political system would be as strong as ever, and none of the post-2387 Romulan backstory would have even been necessary to begin with. If you really need to pin blame on someone for this, blame J.J. Abrams first.
