Legal "The OFT has launched an investigation into whether children are being unfairly pressured or encouraged to pay for additional content in 'free' web and app-based games, including upgraded membership or virtual currency such as coins, gems or fruit. Typically, players can access only portions of these games for free, with new levels or features, such as faster game play, costing money." Instances of this may be illegal, especially when it targets children. As for me - I just find it incredibly annoying.

They are doing the same thing that started with gaming with the PS3 and Xbox360 DLC, it has permeated all gaming platforms that have an internet connection.

Thus you'll still pay $20-70 for the game base install, then have to be bled dry for DLC or other in game crap.
