I've seen my fair share of bad Star Wars games anyway so this can't go wrong personally.
A bad game isn't always the worst EA does; generally bad games (in the case of EA) are due to noose-around neck strict deadlines, poor playtesting, and poor Publisher-Developer relations/treatment, among other things (the EA in a Nutshell video portrays this pretty well).

However, the bigger, and I dare say scarier thing is that they could milk or DLC the hell out of their titles, as well as the above statement. Some people say that Activison is worse in that respect, but after having been a fan of the Sims for all these hurts, it's a little hard to say that one is worse than the other, but I'm somewhat inclined to do so.

And then there's Origin *Shudder*

Of course, it's not always bad. Heck, in some cases the developers have things the way they intended for them to be, but seeing the fall of series like Ultima, The Sims, and arguably Sim City, I worry for Star Wars.
