Default Can't EA just die already?

So EA has bought exclusive rights to all foreseeable future StarWars games EA and Disney sign exclusive deal for rights to Star Wars games | Polygon and I am deeply saddened by this. First the Great Lucas Arts is killed then this. This is a sad day for StarWars games

Actually, I really liked their NFS Shift and some of the older NFS games. Also I liked ME. But other than that?

The NFS shift series always felt strange physics wise to me so I could never get into them, also some of the tracks were extremely narrow which was just plain frustrating when trying to pass someone.

I think the main problems here are that 1) Its EA and 2) Unlike in the past where we would have gotten games from Obsidian and Bioware, and EA and Lucas Arts, and Pandemic, and countless others now we are going to be severely limited in the spectrum of developers, game types and ideas. Its sad, I was interested in seeing what Obsidian had pitched to Disney a while ago.

This also means that 1313 is officially dead, and games like that cancelled Battlefront3 will never see the light of day again. Damn you Disney and EA.

Don't get me wrong, I too have smelled the ashes of a once great gaming society. I believe that any gamer worth his/her salt will simply refuse to buy into the dumbed down pop culture of mediocre titles. There is hope Obiwan. Do yourself a favor. If you haven't already.

I don't think there has been a good Star Wars game since 2003 anyways.

EA has a lot of licenses that I....used to like, I am not defending them but they are big enough with the right leadership they could do a lot. I am not holding my breath.... but I can hope.

EA = Beta games they patch later. Then when the game finally works nobody plays it anymore. Never mind being riddled with hackers constantly...
