I'm glad to say that the game still works after a few days of play. Better yet, I can even play online and still amazed on how many people still play this which is great. When I had my old rig, I could only play at medium settings, with this one everything is a highest possible settings and it looks awesome.

The problem isn't the games compatibility with windows 7. It is the sound system that windows 7 uses (Realtek) that causes the game to crash. All you need do to make Battlefront 2 work are these 3 simple steps:

1. Right click on the sound icon in the bottom right corner of the screen

2. Click on recording devices.

3. Enable stereo mix

After I did this my game worked perfectly, I didn't even need to use compatibility mode!!!

I can confirm that this works for Windows 7 with out the audio driver update.

Who would think that and audio device would cause this problem and not pop up on a windows error report.

Anyway thanks Delapazz for the tip.

I just remembered how I fixed this issue: plug in a microphone. Not sure where I read that but it fixed it for me even on Windows 8! I also got the latest video and audio drivers and set compatibility to XP SP3 in the process of my troubleshooting. Hope this helps you all

Ok. I've noticed that many, many, many people have posted about the game running fine until you try to start a mission or a multiplayer game. The fix is very simple. Just plug an extra set of headphones into the mic jack of your computer or laptop and it runs fine. With sound too. Hope this helped!

Can confirm on Win 7 64bit that pluggin in my broken headphone into the mic jack worked. I have headphone in my regular headphone jack AND in my mic jack. This is a weird concept, but it worked for me. Thank you!
