Just tired of the same thing happening over and over again. Tired of gaming companies pushing out shoddy product with the hope that patches will fix any problems the hapless beta testers find (hapless because when you pay $40-60 for a product, you kind of expect it to work reasonably well).

The big problem though is that this is NOT unusual - this seems to be the new trend in game producing....let's push this game to market, and let the consumer find the problems instead of beta-testing before sale and release. There are GLARING errors and mistakes in gameplay and game interface that beta testers would have very easily pointed out. LA may have used beta testers....if they really did, they ignored their suggestions.

This game could be incredible - but needs a LOT more than what it has going for it right now. LA was guaranteed a fanbase with ANY "Star Wars" game...and took advantage of that by releasing this game too soon...

Am I still going to try to play it? - of course...

Would I recommend this game to friends? - at this stage of the game, heck no. I'll go tell them to get BF1942 and download the SW mod. Same game as SWBF...with less bugs
