Some workaround tips:
1. Use PowerStrip and make a driver for your monitor, which won't allow it go beyond that resolution. I don't know if it's working for LCD TVs though, still, something you can try.
2. If you happen to be a programmer (or at least have a little knowledge about programming), you could download a proxy dll skeleton off the internet, and change the part where D3D is being initialized. Then compile it and put the d3d?.dll into the game folder. This is the method I use to force off vsync in games that do not have the option.
3. Contact the manufacturer of the TV and ask what they suggest. They may have a solution we can't even think about.
4. Contact EA and ask for support, if the deny it, ask for refund. If you're confident enough, you may even get a few free games from them as compensation.
5. Just play other games.
