Exclamation Beware: Annoying uninstall process...

I was very annoyed to find a new .exe and windows Service running after I installed the demo for this game. Even after deleting the game content, the service still stays on your computer. You have to download an additional removal tool to completely remove the game. Do not waste your time installing this if you don't want to deal with the annoying uninstall process. Note: This new service runs even when the game hasnt been, or isnt being used.

I hope this will save someone else a headache:

I recently/still bought the game - its not bad.

The point is: Developers should never install software that doesn't remove itself after uninstalling, especially for a demo... Imagine if every application did that - thats how computers get bogged down - thats bad.
