Even if that is true it still didn't sell better than Dragon Age. So then the question still is: how rewarding has their shift to hybrid games been? I'm not saying ME2 was a bad game at all, in fact I loved that game. My only point is that they seem to think real RPGs are no longer viable sales-wise, yet real RPGs like Dragon Age and Fallout New Vegas sell just as much if not more.

To take that example further, Fallout New Vegas added RPG depth and complexity. It had no main character voice over and the dialogue options displayed exactly what you were saying. The aiming and accuracy is stat-based. It has all these elements that Bioware insist are no longer viable in today's market and yet it sold more than any of their games. It makes them look silly.
