I use an Xbox 360 controller while playing this game, and I noticed that while playing in flatout mode derby (the only mode I've tried so far) the game will pause whenever I try to boost (press A) or whenever I hit something with the car. It's consistent. It feels like the kind of thing a programmer with a sense of humor would program in to combat piracy, but I did not pirate the game. Other than that I have no idea what's causing it.
