Remove Xbox Live related services from Server 2016
IMHO "Xbox Live Game Save" service left in a product aimed for corporate use is a bit embarrassing.
They should change the name to Windows bloatware 2016.
This is ridiculous! Our compnanies pays lots of money for your licenes and you can't fix a simple issue.
Maybe you could setup a Xbox server and allow folks in a gaming company funnel though that to save bandwidth with this service. I agree it should be a feature or role and not be installed by default.
Having the Xbox service in an OS that is used in a corporate environment wouldn't get past my team, let alone past auditors. This is something that has no place in a server OS, especially by default.
Should an Auditor be technical enough to look for the XBox service... yes, Auditors would have a field day with seeing that XBox is a service that's loaded on a Server.
Agreed. Xbox Live services on Windows Server... I can't use this in production until that gets removed - our auditors would go nuts if they saw that.

Agreed. This is unbelievable.
This was said to be "fixed" in TP4: https://windowsserver.uservoice.com/forums/295047-general-feedback/suggestions/9648150-remove-xbox-applications-from-server-2016
