While as of now, this is definitely a pipe dream, maybe EA can realize that gamers do indeed like an included story mode to jump into, and a multiplayer only game has a shelf life of only so long before being dropped for the next big thing.
The reasoning behind deciding to leave a real dedicated single player mode out of Battlefront is because EA seems to think no one cares for that anymore.
“Very few people actually play the single-player on these kind of games. That’s what the data points to.”
But I guess when the head of EA, Peter Moore says something, it must be true right?
