Sea of Thieves deserve the low score at release but with all the update that was made to the game. The current version of the game doesn't deserve the 69 that it got at release.
EA's Star Wars Battlefront II is in the mid to high 60s (varies on different platforms) on Metascore because it's the launch version. So I feel that pain. I'm glad I didn't play the game at launch (didn't have a PS4 yet).
To me, the final version of Battlefront II is at least the high 70s. I would personally rate it in the low to mid 80s. A lot of fun with some good content.
Shigeru Miyamoto amended his famous quote in recent years to say that a bad launch remains bad forever, not necessarily a game.
