At least Lucas had most of the background material for the OT (less so the prequels) roughed out before production on the first movie even started in 1977. Bioware set out to make a trilogy of games with no clear idea of where the plot would progress after the first game. You could argue they were maybe playing it safe in case ME1 was a flop. But then they made the second game and still had no idea about the plot for the 3rd one, or how either tied back in with the narrative arc of the series. That way madness lies....
