When I start a new game or continue a saved game, the game's screen freezes within less than five minutes of play time. I can still click around but I don't know what I am clicking and I can hear the clones working. The screen never un-freezes. In my "Task Manager" the game is using nearly 2,000 MB of memory. The game will also crash on me before I even get to the main menu.
So I upgraded my Laptop from 8GB to now 16GB, thinking that this extra memory might keep the game from freezing so quickly. But lo and behold.... the game freezes just as fast. Nothing has changed.
Open a new game and wait five minutes.
