The ground battles were similar and they had all the planets from each era. I think I read somewhere that EA were the worst customer service company in the world at one point, this is why I have no hope for this game, I'd like to be proved wrong though.
    EA – the publisher behind behemoth franchises such as FIFA, Battlefield, and The Sims – has had the honor of being named ‘Worst Company in America’ several times in recent years.

    The result is courtesy of a fan vote from a consumer affairs blog, earning EA a ‘Golden Poo’- beating out the likes of Bank of America and oil giant BP.

    While other companies might have shrugged out the results of an online fan poll, EA executive Peter Moore has insisted that it’s a sign they need to do better.

    Peter Moore – discussed EA’s recent shift to attempt to become a ‘player-first’ company in an interview with IGN.

    He explained:


    "Yes, [being named Worst Company in America] was ridiculous. And this was also the time of sub-prime mortgage crisis; banks are dumping hundreds of thousands of people out onto the street. You try and be defensive and say this is stupid, this is ridiculous; and then you go, ‘Maybe there’s a kernel of truth here.’ Maybe this is a moment we can step back, look in the mirror, look at who we are, look at how we’re perceived, and figure out what we need to do to do something about it. Perception is reality so if there perception is that we’re not a company that puts players first, then how do we change that?"

    Moore created a committee within the company that looked over sites such as Reddit and NeoGAF, to see just how bad the internet’s perception of them was.

    It was acknowledged that EA were indeed ‘guilty of some stuff’, but Moore never got into specifics regarding areas where EA could have have done better – I’m sure we can fill in those blanks on our own.

    Moore concluded:


    "We made a deliberate attempt to say, ‘Fine, how do we go forward here?’ And the mantra that we came up with was this concept of player-first. To this day, in fact this morning, in meetings, questions are always asked–what do we need to do here? When do we ship that? What type of experience does this need to be?–somebody will say, but is that player-first? And that’s the moment we all stop and think. It’s not about revenue; it’s not about what benefits EA."

    hhmmmm, Peter Moore..?? I wonder who he works for now Do you think he'll have a committee trawling these boards reading our posts?

    I guess we'll see if EA change over the next few years.

    What platform is the old Battlefront 2 on?

    Ps2, not sure if it was on Xbox as well think it may have been. Yeah if he follows through with EA's don't listen to anything customers say policy he can do one.
    Ps2 games are hard to pick up and play now unless you've previously played them and enjoy the nostalgia. I played battlefront 2 with my mate when we were kids for hours, that and Lord of the rings return of the king, what a game.

    All football manager 2017 players on here have a look at this in football manager 2017 - which I think is out of order, I am from the UK.

    I just thought about starting a new save game with Dortmund club team and Germany as my national team, you can't start a save game as German national manager or Japan manager either.

    70 years on and both nations are still have trouble with the rest even in the gaming world, I'm very sad of heart by the football manager team doing this to them two nations in the footballing gaming world's best manager sim.

    Have a look to see if I am right, plus no J Leagues either.

    I might not get next years game over it, because I want football manager to not act like that, they are acting like the English fans in the so called friendly with Germany singing songs about the war and so on.

    Are you sure its not just an licensing issue? think I read somewhere once EA have rights to the Germany team.
    I might be totally wrong, not sure really

    That could be the case, maybe with the japan national team and maybe the J Leagues as well, but I would not know that and could put 2+2 together and get 5.

    No problem, but I know I am correct both nations and J Leagues are not in the game, but what would the reason be for japan not being in the game.

    I know Sega are the big partner in the football manager game, maybe image rights again just me thinking and maybe getting it wrong.
