Background lore =/= story.
While I agree that Alpha Protocol could present some story points better (I don't agree with the fact that it's a mess as far as characters are concerned.. they have far more depth than it seems at first, and work well inside the storyline without going all 'ok, now sit back for 30 minutes to hear my absolutely dreadful backstory', a method which was abused in Mass Effect), if you strip a couple of fancy codex entries, Mass Effect's story is, at its core, a very fantasy-ish and banal story.
The characters? I understand it's a matter of taste, but characters in Mass Effect for me were absolutely dreadful, and I usually enjoy Bioware NPCs a great deal.
I'm not a bug, I'm a feature!
