    I am trying to decide how large to make my BC partition.

    I am not going to use Windows much except for the occasional MS Office/random programs.

    Would a 35gb partition be large enough?

    How large is your BC partition? What do you use BC for?

    I have the base Retina MBP. So 256gb HD

    I would advise on 40gb+

    windows takes around 24gb office can take around 3gb, leaving you with available space of 5-7gb (yes its smaller than 40gb I know, its because the filesystem is different and those 40gb that you put there before will likely be around 34-35gb)

    Can I increase the size of the partition later?

    No you can't. You would have to backup, then delete the partition and start over.

    How much space does battlefield 3 take up? I want to play battlefield 3 on windows 7 on my soon to come RMBP 256GB so I don't have a ton of spare space.

    Looks like they recommend 20GB so you'd want at least 60 GB for it.
