Political Romance Anime

What I'm looking for is a political anime much like Saiunkoku Monogatari, however I would like it to have a little more action much like The Twelve Kingdoms, Berserk, and Utawarerumono. Granted I would like the Romantic aspects of the show to be important to the show so a show like Crest of the Stars would be a great example of what I'm looking for. Please do not recommend any Gundam shows because I think i have seen them all and most of them fit but I have seen them....

The animation style is also important...
I like the animation style of Record of Lodoss War and even shows like Apple Seed, but I do not like the animation style of Maison Ikkoku.

And no ecchi please
shows like Chobits, DearS, and Soul Link; although these shows might meet some of the things i am looking for the panty shots take away from the shows....

OOO... another show that is similar or exactly like what i'm looking for is Heroic Age and Code Geass

Legend of the legendary heroes might be what you're looking for.

I looked over your list and thought you might want to give these a try:

Toshokan Sensou - Armed librarians fight to defend the freedom to read.

Oh! Edo Rocket - Another show about political repression that morphs into a different political riff toward the end

Those both have romantic leads and explicitly political content. Here are two more that don't quite fit, but you might like any way:

Kemono no Sou-ja Erin - Based on another story from the author of Moribito, Uehashi Nahoko. Like Moribito, Erin depicts a world where contemporary political conflict is based on outdated or even false traditions.

Yakushiji Ryoko no Kaiki Jikenbo - Mostly just for fun. Ryoko's family ties to other government agencies and private security firms raise issues of corruption. Stylish, with witty dialog and good acting, though a weak plot. Lots of sexual tension between the leads.

Political shows with no romance that you should watch anyway.

Monster - How can you not have watched this if you're interested in politics?

Legend of Koizumi - Former Japanese PM Koizumi Junichiro battles other world leaders in a fight to preserve peace and Japan's place in the world. The battleground in question is a Mahjong board. Often hilarious with wry touches like the (souvenir?) shoe in GW Bush's bed.
