Is it because of the recent Star Wars Battlefront II debacle, or their reputation in general?

Oh I have a lot of reasons.

A lot because of the star wars thing (Never was interested in the star wars but the drama was so huge) and it was blatantly obvious what the community hated there and they screamed it at their face and they got nothing but neutral remarks and dodges and "fixes" which were just veiled attempts to divert the hate instead of fixing the simple issue because that would lose them sales on microtransactions and squeezing it's customers for far more money and that is unacceptable on principle for them.Customers mean nothing, money means everything. I mean hiding stuff like characters/features (which are already in your copy of the game btw) behind a paywall after you paid full prince for a AAA game is serious bullshit. This is a common theme in every newer EA game like NFS payback, FIFA, Star wars etc.

Also secondly they did ruin a couple of great francises for me by just pumping out bad products that might as well be dead ends because they're impossible to continue (ME3 ending/Andromeda as a whole and Command and conquer tiberium twilight).
Also EA is your stereotypical giant corporation that stomps out it's competition by buying them out and taking control of their franchises. Take the studious that made dead space, CnC and titanfall just recently. Both games were fan favorites but ea either wants a cut of the money or they want them out of the market. DId you know they even tried to buy valve? What a disaster that would have been for Pc gamming.

Also I hate origin for no particular reason except that it's not steam.

Oh yea, I remember what happened to Titanfall 2. It got crushed between CoD and Battlefield, and even the dev's started blaming EA. That was a big debacle alright. But it's not something I give a shit about, not as much as Mass Effect. I mean, this should have been something special. Heck, AC Unity was ridden with bugs but it wasn't this bad, and Ubisoft did manage to come back with AC Syndicate, and especially with AC Origins, but Andromeda was just a disaster.
