How would PP look with OG and/or Battlefront infantry on the table together? I know PP are true 15s, so would they look like pygmies on the table with OG or BF? I know there are differences between manufacturers but, at some point, I think the size differences becomes absurd and detract from the game.

Most of these guys are OG and Battlefront. The guys three and four from the right are PP.

The size difference is absurd and detracts from the game.

Or the guys on the right are OG and the ones on the left are 1/72. Regardless, I am glad that you agree with me.

I have figs from all three and they work fine together. There is more variation between metal/plastic Battlefront figures then there is between the three manufacturers.

Thank you. I'm thinking about some "what if" stuff, so a mix of manufacturers is needed to do what I want.

Pictors, thanks for making me laugh.

Yup. I've got figures from all three of the above manufacturers in my armies and they all mix quite well in my opinion.

I believe that heft is way more noticeable than height. You can disguise height if the heft is similar. Just build up the base with spackle or whatever you want to use. It works fine.

It depends on the specific Peter Pig figures or range. The more recent figures, such as the Ottoman Army infantry or the Freikorps German infantry, stand noticeably taller than earlier PP counterparts. I don't have OG figures in '15' mm but agree with Dynaman that the PP and BF figures are fine together (along with Minifigs but that brand did not feature in the original question). There are some weapons systems that you can only source through BF.
