The government won't be involved anytime soon because despite appearances, EA isn't approaching a monopoly. There are vast hordes of developers and publishers out there: EA would have a damned long way to go before the word 'monopoly' would even begin to apply.
And for those complaining about the monopoly on NFL games and other sports franchises, as much as I prefer the 2K series, the government won't step in there either: the sports leagues get antitrust exemptions from the legislature, and have the right to sell off exclusive rights to their stuff. Though since some senators are on the NFL's case over Patriot-Spygate as it is, maybe some would be receptive to hearing about it. An email campaign to Arlen Specter would be a good start.
edit- despite my pointing out the bad news, I hate EA and want them to die too.
