While Steam simply gives you a Vietnam key that you have to associate with your in-game EA account, it won't let you purchase it until you have BFBC2 associated with your Steam account.

Kind of backwards and convoluted to be honest..

Yep, it's very odd the way Steam deals with BFBC2 Vietnam. It will take a Vietnam key purchased anywhere but if you buy it (you used to be able to buy it without BFBC2), the purchase is wasted until you add BFBC2 to Steam.
