Yes, this is exactly how I felt about Mass Effect when I played it; this is also the reason why I'm not leaping to buy anything that comes out of Bioware going forward. They have been moving closer and closer towards the EA model of "paint by numbers, to make the numbers" with each successive game.

FO3, even though a severely gimped/bastardized version of FO, at least tried to offer real exploratory possibilities. In fact, the core gameplay involves simply grabbing your gun and heading out into the wilderness to see what happens. Doing that in Mass Effect, as opposed to following the main plot line, becomes oppressively boring.
