The game either crashes (unhandled exception) or gets stuck at the pause menu with the only working option being quit to "Windows"

The game is unplayable.

Additional Comments

I'd love to get this game working. I think this game falls under the "used to many dirty tricks" category. I'm not sure what specific effects the EA guys were going after, but they suck for going after them the way they did--and if I ever see one of them I'll make a funny face at them all! >8) My instinct tells me that it's a mixture of how the game manages window focus, window size, and mouse+keyboard input.
