Roman Battle Formation in larger battles

Seems to be very bad when deployed by AI - it always places units in deep formation with 6 lines, which means human player will always outflank the AI... Historically, Romans never used more than 3 ranks. It just doesnt look right, and makes gameplay against Romans just strange... Base principle in Ancient warfare was to match the enemy frontage, yet Romans in FoG2 never do.

its especially bad considering single unit represents Cohort, or 3 maniples in checkerboard formation, which mean, its supposed to represent 2 lines already, which means you have not 6, but 12 lines...
