You need to be clear on your terminology:

Peer-to-Peer is a network architecture. You are discussing a client-server architecture, so there is no "peer-to-peer" here.

Dedicated server versus server-with-local-player is an implementation issue.

Consumer-hosted versus Publisher-or-Developer-hosted is a business model.

If you have a lobby server or master-server list in the clear, it can do NAT tunneling for you, so there is no need for someone to have a firewall setup correctly.
