Beautiful game, with some problems to solve

Age of Empires DE Windows 10/Xbox
I just bought the game. I find it very pleasant, cared for and with the addition of interesting news.
But there are serious problems that need to be solved:

  • You cannot open the game without an internet connection.
    Did I download 17 Gb of game, without being able to make a party offline? This is a very serious mistake which has disappointed me deeply.
  • As a single player, you can’t see the tech tree. Every time I have to save the game, go out, go see the tech tree and load the game again. That sounds very ridiculous and stupid to me.

less serious problems:

  • you can’t use classic mode in multiplayer.
  • AI is scarce, it can’t even cross the sea. I expected improvements in this respect, but it has been unchanged since 1998.

This is very annoying and one of biggest mistakes.

The AI is stronger than in the original game.

As for playing without an internet connection, why is that not allowed? I thought you were able to designate one of your computers for offline gaming.
