They didn't make that game though. They only published it. I know that EA is only the publisher in the case of SimCity, but they're a lot more hands on as a publisher than SE I'm sure. If you look at their history and how games have changed for the worse when they get their hands on them.
Both companies publish some good games. SE has Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, and Hitman through Eidos. EA has the Bioware games that are actually getting worse in terms of plot with every game and more action heavy than being RPG heavy. In general though I have yet to see a game made specifically by SE that I thought was a great game. FFXIII wasn't a good game and they continue to want to shove Lightning down our throats instead of giving fans what they want. After that merger all the Squaresoft games died.
