I don't appreciate it whatsoever. It took the begging of fans to get them to admit that they had huge plot holes to fix and things to explain. When it finally came out, as you said, not much was fixed.
I've been disgusted with Bioware ever since.
I think I invested more emotionally in the Mass Effect series than any other game (even more than my all-time favorite, Grim Fandango). Mass Effect 1 and 2 were absolutely spectacular games and Mass Effect 3 was a great game in its own right - just utterly disappointing to look back on how many hours I put in and how hard some decisions were to make...only to find out that at the end of the day, there are only 3 completely similar outcomes to it all.
Disappointing doesn't begin to describe it for me.
