EA slapped a skin of the star wars series over their rinse and repeat BF mp shooter. They played off the reputation of the old series, while providing little to no content. I avoid Ubisoft and EA for reasons like this, it's terribly sad what they've done to some of their series just to cash in on players who pre-order the same game with new skins every year.

Actually, the game is quite bit different from Battlefield, but I agree that the engine and some aspects are froM Battlefield.

That being said, I also 100% understand where you are coming from. But my hate to EA diminished a lot lately. I love their platform, I love Origin Access and frankly last BF1 game is a blast to me so far.

BF1
Battlefront
Overwatch

are the only 3 online FPS games I play.

DLC support for Battlefront finished few months back in 2016. It was either late 2016 or 1st month of 2017...

Defiantly a no buy after what happened with the first one.
Has the lowest play time of any game iv got on origin with only 20 hours and 3 months after release became impossible to find a server with out waiting 20-30mins.

For comparisons sake the 2nd lowest play time game is hardline at 64 hours.

What would you do, as a developer, if you had in your hands a spectacularly efficient engine for the graphical fidelity it produced, good movement mechanics, and decent physics, and you had a game to release within a short time frame?

Sure, they could iterate on what they had to realize a somewhat better engine, but perhaps the small improvement would require an inordinate amount of development time for a non-tangible feeling in the player that would help to no extent to maintain servers populated.

I mean, really, was the resemblance to the BF franchise what made people hate the game?

I still haven't played shooters on the technical level of BF4 and BF1, and i've played a lot of them.
