I personally don't approve of that but they don't see it as an issue. I'm not saying that all PC owners illegally download games but I'm calling it how I see it. So I can appreciate why measures such as always online are taken. This seems to be a simple case of them underestimating how many people wanted their game, and the strain that would put on their servers. As I understand it servers can be a very costly investment. Perhaps they didn't want to invest too heavily in them given that Sim City isn't really a big name anymore.
Ultimately the people to blame for this are all those who illegally download games. Obviously the industry has to react to that, especially when it's so prevalent. As long as there's so much piracy with PC games the industry will take increasingly tough measures to fight it, and that will sometimes compromise the customer's experience.
