Well, I don't want to start a big discussion about this, but I think it
is their game.  They offer you this service, so that you can be sure it
really works before spending the money.  The counterpart is that some
people will buy it without thinking too much about it and rely on the
fact that it can be returned for refund.  Therefore, some people,
because of this policy, will buy while maybe the wouldn't otherwise.
