I was. I tried different classes, settings and planets in different order. You get some very funning dialogue depending on when you go to certain planets.

Even knowing were everything was on my tenth play through it took me 45 hours, but if you want to skip dialog and the side quests the nine to twelve hours is believable. That is the beauty of Mass Effect to me, that it is up to the player the amount of time the want to invest in the game.

Depends. I enjoyed some of them. There is a lot of driving around looking for things and it does get tedious. The interior of building are the same and that become tiresome, but there are many Easter Eggs (Watch out for the “shifty cow”) to be found not to mention the money and experience points to be earned. I like leveling up, so I always do the exploitation missions. Could the side quest have been better, sure! IMO they are still playable.
