I would agree with this as well. The story actually has some very interesting conflicts, and the concept of a story centering around a volatile political situation in a major city instead of destroying the "great evil" is extremely refreshing. Unfortunately, the solid premise and intriguing conflicts are not taken advantage of due to Bioware's linear, cinematic approach that diminishes player choice and the rushed development time.
