So I loved (maybe slightly hyperbolic there) Battlefront 1. I thought it was a lot of fun, I dig the Star Wars universe, and it happened to be one of the few shooters I managed to be good at. I was really looking forward to 2, but now that this whole microtransaction issue happened I'm a bit bummed. I personally don't care about loot boxes, I steer clear of them in 99% of the games I play, and enjoy getting them from time to time in League of Legends and formerly in Overwatch when I used to play that a bunch.
Anyways, I feel like this loot box issue has taken front stage with Battlefront, and sometimes I think all it takes is one bad aspect to a game to totally sour people's (read: critics) views on the whole product, at least in my opinion. So I want to know, is it really that bad? Is it at least fun? Is the campaign really terrible? I'd like to hear from people who were into Battlefront 1 in particular because I feel like that game got a bad rap and I ended up really enjoying it, and level up so far as the early 50's even.
