You dont need to delete anything.

Just......

  1. Right click on the game in your library.
  2. Click 'Repair'.
  3. Once it validates and checks your base game and all your expansion pack (usually takes a few minutes depending on how many) the option to play will be highlighted again.

There is no such button.

Rightclick the game in Origin and click Repair.
