Write games, not engines, and accept that there are gaps in your knowledge where some of your choices may be sub-optimal. If you keep re-writing every time you learn something new you will never finish a game. If something works well enough for your game just leave it as-is and fix it for the next one.
I am struggling to write an acceptable 2D game engine using C++ and Direct3D11.
Myth: Java not suitable for games. A lot of people prefer other languages, but Java is perfectly capable of producing great games. C# is also very capable.
I did not think such a game [...] could be programmed in a JIT compiled and managed language like Java and C#

If given an unlimited time horizon I am sure I could invest myself completely in one tiny niche of video game development and run out of time on earth before I found the solution to every problem within that niche.

From what I understand Unity is a primarily visual development medium with programming access only at the scripting level.
