The better they sold ME the less they will care about different games (I mean game play wise).

In Oblivion, there is sort of a mine-game, you need to play. In ME, it seems,
at least to me, that you will get to choose what you're going to say from a list of about 4-8 or even more options.
From what we had seen there will be about 3 options usually one of them to end conversation. I don't have impression that it will be mini game like Oblivion and I never heard that.

I want to know what my character is going to say/do when I choose option.

Haw does it allow more complex choices then traditional dialog tree? Even in theory I don't see it.

Actually there was some footage whit dialogs, looked shallow.
