So far most of the conversation around Star Wars Battlefront 2 has concerned the loot boxes and high cost of unlocking heroes. But the version I've been playing on my Xbox One X has some additional problems: bugs.
I ran into a number of them while playing the single-player campaign. They first became apparent while traversing Endor, where I encountered jittering visuals and other problems. At one point, I loaded to find Iden Versio hanging in the air.
The problems appeared to be triggered by putting my Xbox One to sleep and restarting in the middle of the mission. Thankfully, I was able to restart the game and reload from a checkpoint. Still, I was taken off-guard.
I encountered another major bug on Naboo. Following a firefight in the city square, I was confused by the lack of progression. Finally, I found the problem, which you can see below. It seems that this twitching stormtrooper wasn't counted as "dead," which prevented the progression trigger from kicking in.
These were only the two most noticeable bugs that I saw. Others included persistent flickering during cutscenes and enemies taking cover in areas that are clearly on fire (this may not be a bug so much as bad pathfinding).
I reached out to EA regarding a possible Day 1 update that fixes the bugs, but I was informed that the Day 1 update is already live. So it may be a bit before these are properly addresses.
