Battlefield is my time sink

I totally missed Battlefield 1942 when it first came out but with the recent Secret Wepons Multiplayer Demo release have found a great time sink. The big draw is the combination of vehicles, first person shooter and strategy simulation, what a combo. I’m really looking forward to seeing some other renditions of the combinations. Maybe some outside of WWII and the Battlefield engine. Maybe a really brain dead simple battle editor.
Now I just need to find a LAN party for 32 on 32 battles.
