    Star Wars Battlefront II is almost here, and despite how amazing it is at its core, it's already mired in controversy.
    Publishers are pushing micropayments into our premium games harder than ever before, and Battlefront II might be the most egregious of the lot. The multiplayer progression is wrapped up in a system you can buy into, rewarding players with more powerful abilities depending on how much cash you splash. The game's developer, DICE, has restricted the speed at which a payment-heavy player can progress, but are the systems still seem skewed to encourage payment over play?
    It's a damn shame that this has to be part of the conversation because the gameplay is incredible, the visuals are on another level, and the story seems compelling.
