however, the endings were disappointing, or rather the fact that Shepard must die. I was hoping for the ending in which shep survived and just the reapers are destroyed, but didn't get it. I mean, i figured there'd be self-sacrifice, but for all 3 choices? EDIT: I've been reading what people were saying about the endings, how every choice you make in all 3 games up until you reach the citadel at the end doesn't matter and of all the plot holes and inconsistencies because of the "catalyst". I agree.
