Star Wars: Battlefront 2 in-game purchases suspended, for now

Rebels can rejoice and celebrate as their days of virtual protests have created enough disturbance in the Force to force the Empire of Arts to relent and reconsider its bid for supremacy and money. It, however, be too soon to call it a complete victory, as the Empire ominously hints that it will be back, but perhaps in a way that will catch gamers unaware.
