Signing up with one publisher IN GENERAL is such a confusing decision to make anyways. Not to sound like a hippie, but there just seems to be way more potential with licensing out the property to multiple capable companies. More games, more titles, more of a chance for greater profit and quality. Of course licensing it out to too many people could be a problem, but still.
I'll be glad when a more interesting company takes the Star Wars games into their hands.
Why would any publisher pay for the rights to your IP f they know everyone can et access to it?
I do feel though EA is just the wrong company to make deals like these with...... if its a sports title that has a yearly release type thing then EA is perfect for stuff like that.
