Except really what you would get is EA rebranded as MS making Star Wars games. There's some nice trophies in the EA warchest but not enough to warrant picking up the whole company and all the operating costs. They really need to poach some good studios and start making new IP.

MS needs to shake things up, do something exciting, and find or build something fresh and new. They are stagnant (much like this generation). Buying EA for rights to Madden 9000, or battlefield 27, is the opposite of the direction they need to go.

It would be a corporate shake up. Which, alone could be the purge needed. EA needs to clean house on the upper deck.
