hmmmm i don't know it seams you guys are a little too harsh ... have you played the game when it was launched compared to what it is now ? seams to me a lot has changed since then to the better . Also do keep in mind that this game engine has been really used in ways that the devs didn't intend to be used but have implemented it due to "consumer" demand .
The game it self i believe has reached its "limit" . Iam sure they are working on a new title with a completely new engine .a JA 3 maybe
And that game that will hold more of your so called "wish list " requirements . But again not all
... the money required to make all wishes come true are far beyond bit composers capabilities .
Overall the devs are throwing out fixes and patches , some official ones and some silent ones continuously , so it is in there best interest to fix the BIA series as good as it at can go . But try to consider the dlcs is a great way to continue enjoying bia till the new title comes out .
especially for the ones that have finished the game a few times already . I actually look forward to new dlc as i can't look at arulco anymore as i overplayed it
