And did that separate team work for free?
I have to agree with Ooshp here.
Most complainers here aren't just being logical.
Games have production budgets which dictate how much can be in a game apart from DLC. You paid a certain amount for a certain amount of game content.
They chose to develop more content than was budgeted for in the core game (at cost to them - professional DLC needs work), and so want to charge more for this.
Now you're arguing that they should give you such stuff, that had a development cost, to you for free. It's a classic gamer entitlement mentality.
Maybe the complaints would be valid if the game was really short, but by all accounts it's the biggest Mass Effect to date. EA does charge pretty high for their games, but we also have to take into account that the size and quality of the games is pretty good.
