I still believe dark energy is going to play an important part in ME3. They just gave too many hints about it in ME2 for it to mean nothing.
Never really thought about the Udina versus Anderson in that way makes me kind of wish I would have picked Udina at least once. All in all, I think I’ve set up my saves rather nicely if the speculation in the article is correct.

I want the Shepard saves the day followed by stones fall down upon their head ending.
