Hawaii State Representative Chris Lee is taking a stand against what he calls "the spread of predatory practices in online gaming."
As mentioned in an announcement specifically about EA and Star Wars Battlefront II, Lee and others are currently "looking at legislation" in the upcoming year that could prohibit the sale of games to players that are under 21 years of age, and possibly even restrict the inclusion of gambling elements, which Lee believes are present in Star Wars Battlefront II via the game's loot boxes.
Lee and his team have also been in conversations with other legislators who are examining similar options for their own states in an effort to curb what he describes as "predatory behavior" on the part of game publishers.
