[Update: Star Wars Battlefront's January patch is now out with major weapon/vehicle/card tweaks - details here!]

Though some fans' reaction to Star Wars Battlefront were at best lukewarm (including our own), the game performed quite well for EA Games, easily beating their initial sales forecast. That boost in sales can likely be credited to a few factors, including the holiday shopping season and the enormous excitement surrounding anything Star Wars, but what's key with any shooter like Battlefront isn't just selling copies - it's keeping players engaged long after its release.
