hubris, japanese former occupiers! HUBRIS!!

Not to spoil anything, but one of the story arcs of the 1999 Japanese strategy RPG Front Mission 3 involves an American invasion of Chinese-occupied Taiwan. The mission briefing involves a two-pronged diversionary attack against Shanxi and Taoyuan while special forces sneak into Taipei via the fictional Ba Kui Dam. With mechs.

There's also a mission in Xinzhu (Hsinchu), where I went to high school.
