Realism is completely overrated in video games. It's a temporary trend at most that will automatically go away in a while. If I want realism, I'll step out of my door; if I want to have fun, I'll play a computer game. Right now many developers sacrifice good gameplay for realism, but over time they will realize they can make much better games by slightly adjusting reality to fit the gameplay.

The same goes for historical accuracy. If you go overboard on historal accuracy you'll end up with an encyclopedia instead of a good game.
