The game was clearly designed to give advantages to those who have more cards, a system that would have rewarded players who paid more before the microtransactions were removed.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 does deserve significant praise in at least one area, and that is its visual presentation. It’s easily the best-looking Star Wars game to date, and is arguably one of the best-looking video games period.
- Game Rant
Star Wars Battlefront 2’s saving grace is its multiplayer. A strong offering provides you with a number of ways to play and a variety of locations to battle on, and if it manages to stick to a level playing field once the infamous microtransactions are added back into the game, it’s an experience we’ll continue to return to.

What experts didn't like
New map Bespin probably isn’t enough of a peace offering.

Story is a pretty rote but disjointed Star Wars tale.

Over reliance on randomized loot drops and microtransactions.
- GameSpot

Unfortunately, a credit cap remains in place for Arcade mode — 500 credits per 12 hours (not counting the credits one can earn for milestone achievements). This was something ostensibly introduced to keep people from farming it for easy credits to buy loot boxes.

Hero characters are duff in the campaign.

In-game purchases cause evil imbalancing.

The campaign also has one big issue that seems to plague all missions: objectives are extremely repetitive, with some obvious padding thrown in to make the campaign seem longer. Many objectives boil down to protecting characters (usually Del) while they do something, moving on to the next object, and then repeating the process. And when players aren’t busy protecting other characters, they will be completing other repetitive tasks that feel like busywork. What’s worse is that even with some obvious padding, which also includes tricks like making players walk slowly through boring talking scenes instead of conveying the same information in a cut-scene, players can realistically beat Star Wars Battlefront 2‘s campaign in less than five hours.
- Game Rant
Plot points quickly re-align with what you’d expect out of a typical good vs evil conflict, and with a couple of overused clichés thrown into the pot, we couldn’t help but groan upon the conclusion.
