@uninspiredcup: True, it's like when EA felt their grip on the franchise slipping they started to ramp up development quality.
Yea. I imagine it was a reaction to Battlefront 2. The game was altruistic to the point of bemusement.
And look now.
That might be a good thing in the long run. This game could suck balls, and it's Ubisoft so high probability, but they will be weary of the shit EA tried to pull and Disney' (speculative) dismay.
