yet they're quite willing to ruin the whole thing by wrapping it in a system hogging ad-serving unity-based frontend that seems incapable of delivering 60fps even on the best phones out there rendering some games literally unplayable because they rely on flicker effects etc. which end up rendering at 30fps causing you to miss things..

I'm not a fan of RA by a longshot, but it would be nice if Sega could get it right for once. Don't think that will happen tho, their priorities seem to be completely backwards, always picking the worst options, sounds like they need a restructure top to bottom.
