This is ridiculous. The game has been out for what, a month? And they are already releasing an expansion pack for half the value of the full game? This DLC crap has gotten carried away because either 1) This Uranus map was already finished by the time the game released or 2) It took less than a month to make it which makes its 50% of retail asking price absurd.

I know people want to have new sections of their games and are willing to pay for it, but when it comes out this quickly it just screams "we are bilking you for more money when we could have released this content at launch with the full game." When are gamers going to say "no more charging us half price a few weeks after launch! We want DLC that is robust and substantially enhances the original game!" When will we say that?
