strange new beahviour in EA games ?

it seems as if EA has a strange new policy as to how to treat gamers. every single EA title in the last year somehow felt to me like it was taking over my computer in some way. all of them started right after the install without asking me. lord of the rings had these endless 5min trailers and in-game sequences that you just couldn’t abort (given the realtive level of difficulty it seems like torture if you have to play a level over and over and always have to watch these dumb intros ). the list is long…
is the microsoft moto : “what could be more important the our os ?” applying to other fields, too, now or what ? i wouldn’t be the least bit surprised about spyware in EA games…

I wonder if you’ll believe me but this was exactly what i was going to post 5 mins ago. Anyway it’s true. The EA games lately do not do anything else than just showing endless trailers and videos. So forgive me EA but you….. SUCK
