Well having read the OP I figured, hey this sounds like she likes same kind of things as my wife. I then proceeded to name a couple of games. Someone had suggested Anno games but I thought the new Simcity would be a better match for someone wanting "Not difficult." Then I recommend this game to women based on my empiric experience. Granted, the "women" was a bit misplaced there, but even so it doesn't make it a statement about gender. It still remains just my recommendation based on my experiences.
Lemmings. The classic version, not the butchered PSN versions.
EDIT: The new Worms game too.
PC Specs: I have a big e-peen
Did I really seem adamant about the thing either? And anyway, are you going to tell me what my experiences are? Am I denied to make cautious assumptions based on them?
Anyway I don't get your problem. I just answered the OP, in what I find perfectly reasonable and helpful tone and then you and others start this batshit.
it fits some of the criteria you mention so i'd recommend the walking dead.
it's slow paced, not hard, combat free and has characters to empathize with.
