I've yet to try out either of the Dragon Ball: Xenoverse games as I'm more of a competitive fighter guy, but as they're developed by Dimps I would like to give them a shot. However, I'm a strong advocate for the preservation of video games and refuse to support always-online DRM or any type of online activations which cripple games as servers get shut down.
With Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, is there ever a point where you have to connect to the internet excluding online battles?
It's a darn shame... you could have put this hand to good use. What a waste of technology...

For a more nitty gritty answer: You can play the entire game, plus most of the DLC storylines and missions (excluding one, I'll get to it) without any online play. I actively don't play online, because I play with a lot of fan mods which sometimes break competitive play.
A few areas of the game are walled off behind online play. IIRC, Mostly it has to do with the TP stores (TP is an in game currency separate from the main currency that can be grinded pretty easily. I hardly ever use it except for the pokemon esque minigame) and some raids and such. There are big bosses, but you CAN still beat them if you're strong enough (it's not easy though) and the game DOES provide some garbage CPU allies to fight with that act as fodder. The biggest issue is that one of the free DLC additions adds Bojack as a possible trainer with his own missions, but he will ONLY train you if you wear attire from his gang, which can ONLY be bought from the TP store while online (and even then, only on certain dates? I remember a ton of pissed fans, so that may have been patched/fixed)
That said, I haven't played in like, six months, so I have no clue about anything newer requiring online play.
