But if i did, a very powerful being doing the best he can within some tight constraints is more consistent with what i see here on Earth.

How would that definition defer from an advanced race of, say, humans or aliens?

How could god create a universe that places constraints on him?

I disagree. Zeus was a god, and he was certainly limited, so were the other gods from the greek/roman/egyptian/norse pantheons.
