The latest major 'Star Wars' game finally dropped its most controversial aspect - but it may be too late
* Nearly six months after launch, "Star Wars Battlefront 2" is finally addressing its controversial "loot box" system.
* After an update scheduled for March 21, virtual prize boxes in "Battlefront 2" will only contain "credits or cosmetic items, such as emotes or victory poses, but nothing that impacts gameplay."
* When it launched in late 2017, "Battlefront 2" became the most egregious example of an ongoing trend where paid video games charged players extra money for so-called "loot boxes."
