-Your TC in the Fuedal Age was not constantly occupied. You should always have it running. Never stop creating vills in the fuedal age unless your researching, or saving for castling.
-You never used your forage bushes. These come in handy in the Dark Age, but they are not the best source of food in the Fuedal Age+ because you have more and more going on with other vills, and so you dont have time to build farms after they are done with foraging. Only use bushes in the Dark Age.
-You take alot of time spreading out your vills over farms. There is probably about 1 min. 30 sec. that couldve been saved by not doing that. TC 1.0C(Maybe others too) automatically spread vills out over farms. You know how when you build a building with a vill, if there is a foundation near the building they just finished, they will move to it and build it next. It is the same with farms, vills will spread out over farms if they are not to far away. If they are to far away(like across the TC, second row of farms), then just split the farmers in half and send some to the left and some to the right. That should cover farms.
-When you are preping for castle, you only used one vill to build your two fuedal buildings. The more vills you use the faster you will go. You had 1,000 food when you were building the fuedal buildings. That means it was safe to take off the farmers and build. When vills build a building, if they are carrying resources they keep the resources untill they are done constructing, and then you can send them back and they wont have lost any of that resource that they had before they were constructing the building.
Following these tips should save you 2-3 mins. That should get your time down to a rough 17 mins. :)
If you want to get faster, reading this wont help. Close this window and open up AoE. :)
I have a series that Im going to sumbit soon called WRS(Woner Race Series). There are 18 games that are all about speeding through the ages. Maybe they can help you.
I hope these have been some kind of assistance to you!

JuBu, you completely left your forage bushes out. If you had some 5 villagers on it, you would have got lots of free food.
