As for the bad game design... debatable. It certainly creates some amount of disconnect, but I won't call it bad game design. Given the choice between ruining the mystery or a bit of disconnect, I can fully understand why they chose the disconnect.
I'm not so sure about that. Most of my love for Tali comes from her cute way of speaking... and that bewitching accent!

Wish they had this last month when I bought ME2. Tough break.

I'm still somewhat confused how that works. I've activated my Black Emporium long ago, how do I get... whatever code I need to get another copy of ME2?

As a gamedesign student myself I wouldn't have made Tali a romance option to keep the game in line with the earlier established rules and to prevent this type of situation.
And if they hadn't included a Tali romance, people would have complained about that. Given the choice between slight disconnect only a fraction of the players ill notice, much less be bothered by, destroy Tali's mystique, or excluding Tale romance altogether, the choice is rather obvious.

I played Arrival, and I don't have any problems with Shepard's voice. DLC itself is a tad weak though.

Didn't notice any improvements, myself. But I concur, the DLC is rather weak...

Oh god, here come all the "omg fem shep on the cover" fans... *readies shotgun*

I hope its NOT about shepard.. perhaps Anderson/Saren past?

The main reason it will be the default male shepard is because all three gamee commercials and trailers had him in it. So why change it? The same reason samus doesn't get a new suit or hair changed.

Anyways its also a change for male shep to get a bad ass japanese VAer, I nominate bakuyas va from bleach

Doesn't Japan already have Mass Effect? Who voices Shepard in the game there?

The people who want fem shepard to be on the masseffect 3 cover just because hale is "supposably" the better shepard than male shep, I figured there would be a lot of peope wanting shepard to be a woman in the anime.

When I clicked the link the very first comment I see is "I. Hope they don't d*** it up" and other omg lesb shep hawtness comments

Oh. Well, I play the best of both worlds. Male Shep for Tali romance and all-round wholesome Paragon guy, while Fem-Shep is pure awesome, butt-kicking, head-smashing, guns-blazing, bone-breaking, baby-chewing, puppy-kicking, kitten-stomping, and all-around badasstitude Renegade.

Natch.

Jennifer Hale's voice acting isn't the only reason why a disproportionate majority of ME fans prefer the female Commander Shepard.

If you think about it, it's actually very simple.

The reason most ME fans like the female Shepard...

... is because NEARLY EVERY GODDAMN MOTHERFUCKING ACTION VIDEO GAME HERO IS SOME WHITE MALE DOUCHEBAG WITH BROWN HAIR AND A BEARD OR GOATEE. WE DON'T WANT IT ANYMORE. IT'S UNCREATIVE AND BORING TO ALWAYS SEE THE SAME GODDAMNED THING OVER AND OVER. FUCK. SHIT.

ASS!


*takes a deep breath*

*turns off Angry Video Game Nerd mode*

I personally like female Shepard because I identify better with female characters, and thus I always play female characters when I can, but I understand that the primary reason most MALE players who choose female Shepard is because they're terribly bored of the same cookie-cutter action heroes.

The voice acting is just a secondary issue, and it's entirely subjective. Some people hate Jennifer Hale, other people hate Marc Meer and a couple of people I know hate them both and think all video game voice acting is horrible.

Nothing to do with that really, considering Shepard's looks can be changed by the player regardless of the chosen gender. I will say however, that Western developers choose the bald male look simply because it's easier to render on screen.

A lot of guys who like playing as female Shepard (or prefer female avatars in general) do so because they'd rather see a female figure if they're going to spend all that time as that character. Personally, I choose the default look simply because all the customized Shepards I've seen, male and female, look ridiculous to me.

By the way, I'm not sure if this has been reported here already, but surprise!

There's going to be a Mass Effect anime—a feature film, to be exact. (There's also one for Dragon Age too...)

I tweaked my Shepard slightly... accidentally she turned out looking like Ripley from Alien.

I actually didn't change my Hawke at all. I thought stock female Hawke looked great.

You don't like the male shep I posted?

Face it, most people picked fem shep for the lesbian action

I play male characters because I think of them as a avatar of me and romance the charavter I! Would like.

If you look at the pic I posted you'll notice he has full para and half renegade, that because I'm a ass to ass holles.
