Well technically in WoW, the last time I played, The New Horde and The Alliance are at a state of "uneasy" truce, which sometimes breaks out into
"Skirmishes," and small non siege like battles for certain territories, while not trying to wipe the other out. Basically the Geopolitical Chess
game, rather then the Horde trying to wipe out the Alliance. In fact, the Horde vilify the Alliance for similiar reasons(Xenophobia, Culture Gap,
etc.) Remember, the Orcs and all their current allies in WoW were once with the Horde(Exception is the Tauren I think), if you play through the Undead
Campaign a bit more(in WoW), it reveals in what way the Undead are allied to the Horde and lets say their intentions are not that pure. Also the
Undead are Lead be Silvanus and a couple of those big winged demons who stabbed their masters in the back. BTW The Undead campaign is some of the most
imaginative and humorous quest lines in the entire WoW experience.
As for why the races polarized there are two obvious reasons.
1. It was politically necessary for the races involved to ally themselves with one power or the other to retain a balance to keep each side to a
stalemate in every battlefield for hours at a time.
2. It's a MMORPG. A Bi-Polar world is easier then a Tri- or Multi-Polar world. I do think they should implement some sort of Neutral faction
featuring the Goblins.
