Petitions never, ever work in the video game industry, but with nearly 80,000 people signing a petition to take the Star Wars game license away from Electronic Arts, it's clear that many consumers want to send a message to the controversial company following their antics of the past few weeks.

EA's relationship with its customers has turned very sour over the past few months thanks to the Star Wars Battlefront II microtransaction fiasco, and it clearly looks like it hasn't learned after their implementation in UFC 3's beta.

The petition states: "EA have had the Star Wars video game license for the last four years, and in that time they've proven to their consumers that they honestly don't care about the gameplay experience or content, they'd rather rush out a game that will try and milk as much money out of consumers as possible."
