If you want more, you need to customize org-emphasis=regexp-components,
in particular the maximum number of newlines allowed.  The doc says:

| org-emphasis-regexp-components is a variable defined in `org.el'.
| Its value is ("       ('\"{" "-       .,:!?;'\")}\\" "        
| ,\"'" "." 1)
| Documentation:
| Components used to build the regular expression for emphasis.
| This is a list with five entries.  Terminology:  In an emphasis string
| like " *strong word* ", we call the initial space PREMATCH, the final
| space POSTMATCH, the stars MARKERS, "s" and "d" are BORDER characters
| and "trong wor" is the body.  The different components in this variable
| specify what is allowed/forbidden in each part:
| pre          Chars allowed as prematch.  Beginning of line will be allowed 
| post         Chars allowed as postmatch.  End of line will be allowed too.
| border       The chars *forbidden* as border characters.
| body-regexp  A regexp like "." to match a body character.  Don't use
|              non-shy groups here, and don't allow newline here.
| newline      The maximum number of newlines allowed in an emphasis exp.
| You need to reload Org or to restart Emacs after customizing this.

Also check Oleh's method of customizing this variable: it's much less
error prone than doing it by hand. See
