That is what you get for being so damn greedy you sell power in a game where cosmetic items aren't a thing because Disney said no to that, either way, serves you right EA.

Probably because people are realizing that EA's games are dead husks compared to what their studios used to release.

I wonder whether the suits at EA are worried or whether they still will make all the money they want from those that did buy the game and happily will waste their money on Loot Boxes?

The thing that keeps these systems going is whether or not a game can maintain an active online playerbase. That will be the big test, if the playerbase drops quickly there will be nobody to buy the loot boxes after a few months.

Don't think Disney is some good company. They are greedy just as well

Disney only did it so it didnt hurt sales or potential revenue from their latest movie coming next month.

Oh absolutely, BUT disney/lucas are very strict when it comes to Star wars Visuals and it needing to be cannon, can you imagine Darth Vader skins or Yoda outfits? yeah no EA had no other thing to offer but stat boosts and just general crap.
