It is just too easy for the most part. Most medium to large parties can easily sack a village. Often times a single party can even siege a weak castle. If villages we're beefier, and the AI preferred to stock up garrisons in border castles that would be a good start. I also think that party sizes are a too high. Clan leaders should have a decent sized force but everyone else should be smaller imo. If parties were mostly small-medium then taking a city would be a special event requiring many more nobles in an army to accomplish.
