I've had the base game for a few years and haven't made it through a game yet; Mediterranean looks like it has a lot of stuff that should have been in the base game to begin with.

That being said, how much play could I get out of the core set before I'd want to consider getting Mediterranean and the other expansions?

They were originally going to be one game but got split to keep the price down. With the Random Scenario Generstor, you could pretty much play forever, so the question is really, when do you want to play with the additional nationalities?

Honestly, I'm good with USA vs. Germany for a long time. My big interest was the Normandy expansion which looks like it requires Mediterranean.

It only affects some of the scenarios in the battle pack. See the list here starting at number 46 through 61 - Combat Commander Complete Scenario List (Numerical)

I think CCE holds up very well - it is all I play and I play 20 to 30 games a year. I own and have played the other games but would play the first CCE scenario a thousand more times.

The scenario generator is good as well and has led to many interesting matchups.

The base game is all you really need for years of good gaming. The 1st and 2nd Battle Packs will add much more to the base game before you need Mediterranean.

...and then there were some of us who were wondering when the Commonwealth troops would be available so they could REALLY start playing. That said, I prefer the RSG in CC: E, because CC: M "broke" the defender's at-start artillery.

You may have seen this, but here's a thread that talks about what happened with those changes a little bit.
