It is also what happens when developers are forced into genres that are outside of their wheelhouse. How many studios have EA axed after they did this to them?

I remember Visceral Games finding success with games like Dead Space and Dante's Inferno. Then EA decided that they should make Battlefield Hardline and then a (reportedly cancelled) Star War title called "Project Ragtag".

One has to wonder what would have happened if they got more creative freedom. Similarly, one has to wonder what Mass Effect Andromeda could have been if Bioware Montreal wasn't forced to use Frostbite.
