I'll try to help. Just going to follow your steps. Brb.

EDIT:
I have no online account for this game - yet
You should get one, the multiplayer is so very very fun. The single player is an ok run too though.

I click "play offline"
the sidebar disappears
That shouldn't happen. You should have a sidebar with buttons on the top (exit and options) and two big "buttons" saying PLAY and ARCHIVE.

I click "Create Game"

So far, so good.

I have am left with a screen showing some water and shore line including a light house and a pair of shipping lane bouys, music playing.
You should see a "matchmaking" screen, that says Game1 in the corner, fleet size, your username (default: Admiral) and some random text. When you then click Ready in the bottom right corner there should be a loading screen into Mission Briefing. There you would click Launch and THEN the game should start. The shore line and light house is the correct map, however.

Make an online account and lets do a co-op campaign!

I am a PC user so am of little assistance... but that is definitely not supposed to happen. The screen with water/shore/light house is the default background screen for when you're flipping through the menus.

ok -
so I created an online account - and the game appears to be playable - I have not yet done so yet.
HOWEVER -
OFFLINE play does not work <period>.
I end up in the exact same place as I initially described.

Also quitting fails too. I have to force quit the game.
