If you are having issues with the game, then you might encounter error code 426, Star Wars Battlefront II error 426 occurs because of an underage player trying to play the game, this can be blocked by either an adult or a family member that is of the same age as the underage player.
It turns out that this problem is related to the account DoB (Date of Birth) that is initially configured when the Xbox Profile is created. If the account is under 13 years old, you will not be able to join multiplayer games on most of EAs releases.
In this case, you can circumvent the issue entirely by creating a new Xbox One profile that is of age. Else, you can open a support ticket with EA and go to the process of changing the DoB or wait for the account to come of age and follow the instructions to make the migration to an adult account.
This problem is most commonly reported to occur on Xbox One and occurs in scenarios where the age set up for the account is keeping the user from playing multiplayer (birthdate is under 13 years).
Keep in mind that this is an EA Policy, not Xbox Live or PSN. Several affected users facing the same problem have reported that this is not something that Xbox Support can help with since the restriction is imposed on the EA account – other games don’t have this type of restriction.
Just like with Battlefield 1 or Battlefield V, the quickest way to fix this problem is to create a new Xbox Profile and use an age that makes the user over 18 years old.
If you still can’t solve this problem you can visit their website and contact the EA Account.
