Paradox on Sword of the Stars 2 Problems

Fredrick Wester offered a frank criticism of Sword of the Stars 2 during the recent Paradox Convention, as the Paradox Interactive CEO called releasing the space strategy sequel in an unfinished state a "big mistake." according to Strategy Informer. He went on to explain this turned into a Kobayashi Maru scenario: "Sometimes youíre stuck in a situation where you can only choose between two really bad outcomes. Looking back Iím not sure what I could have done." He does offer an outlook on how they will attempt to prevent a repeat of this scenario:

Weíre changing our QA processes based on this game, and weíre changing the whole model of how we make games with third parties. Weíve added amendments to existing contracts to prepare, to try and stop it from happening again."

"But it was bad, and Iím the first to admit it was my fault and weíre doing our best to fix it."

I canít believe that they didnít know the game was unfinished, if they didnít then their QA process is really screwed up. Plus, whereís his apology to those that bought this unfinished game? I didnít see one in his comments. Shameful!
