The roots of this problem are probably so deep in their code that I don't think there will ever be a complete solution, although it would less noticeable as people move to computers and with more memory.
I dont know, the game doesnt use much ram at all on my system. I was getting between 300 and 500Mb usage on it when playing Episode 1.
