The young george foreman was horrible, even though EA ruined FN:champion with patches removing blood and ruining the stamina and power punches.

Another dumb one is the Batman AC Robin and Nightwing skins as well as the new SSX Eddie Wachowski character and custom snowboard (EA again)

I am really not in favor of devs slicing the game up further just to give select outlets exclusive DLC....A better way to do it is to have an in game item unlocked early as opposed to going through the game to find it, or free DLC like Back to Karkand
