because it did, they had a template with BF2, and instead focused seemingly all of their resources on graphics, angry joe's review sums it all up pretty well
not to mention the laughable DLC
I find it funny, I was one of the people who at first was yelling "oh no don't make it like battlefield"
but then I did a little research and really, the old Battlefront's were essentially just Battlefield reskins just with a few things changed around, but the way they were changed was enough to make an awesome 2 star wars games
so when people said "I want it to stay close to the originals" what they really wanted was a (essentially) battlefield reskin
well, I'm glad someone could have fun with it
but I could only play for a few hours (thank god I didn't actually buy it) before I got bored and saw through the incredible lack of content (well that's just one of the issues, there's a lot more that I will not go into)
