Galaxy is required for online play. Out of curiosity I visited the game's page, where it states that it's in public beta and only supports online play, hence the bundle of Galaxy. I am guessing others do better with it or no one would have Galaxy. I don't have it installed because I don't like having to install 3rd party software for extra features, and I consider it a form of DRM/vendor-lock-in, just as the Steam platform is. I prefer to play my DRM-free games without any kind of stupidness from the part of the software.
