    Normally I'm totally on board with your "we want to see…" lists, but there's several things that I disagree with here. First off, as many others have pointed out, in Mass Effect 2 you are NOT a clone, they were able to bring you back to life with incredible amounts of time, technology, and money. What you see over the opening credits is literally dead tissue being brought back to life. Fighting a dark reflection of yourself can be a powerful story element, but it needs to be done carefully to avoid being cheesy. I don't want to see a "Nega-Shepherd," but rather something more akin to Two Face in Batman. Two Face represented what Batman could become if he lost his moral core, and that's what I want to see, not some cliché clone-type plot device. Second, Tali's face should not be revealed. At this point it's sorta like the aliens in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, anything that Bioware puts on screen would be disappointing. Leave Tail's face up to the audience's imagination, the biggest strength of Mass Effect is creating your own experience, Tali, in a way, embodies that. The audience is free to project onto Tali's appearance what they want within the template that Bioware has given. It's far more powerful if you see Tali in your mind's eye representing someone from your life that you care about rather than as an image created by another artist. Third, I disagree that complete success shouldn't be an option, part of what made Mass Effect 2 so good was that depending on how you played your cards you could win everything or lose it all. That element should return for Mass Effect 3, however, winning everything should be a true test of skill and intelligence. It should be possible, just crazy hard, so that when you do it you feel a real sense of accomplishment, as if you truly did do the impossible.

    I'm sure it would get a laugh if behind the mask Tali looked like Leeloo from Futurama.

    I always just figured that Tali would be kinda cute. so yeah, since we're most likely finally going to see her face in 3, the strongest effect would be if Tali actually looked sort of plain. we'll see if the Tali lovers really love her for her 'personality' of if its' because they secretly hope she's hot behind the mask.

    Shepard being a clone is incorrect; He is still the same person, just modified with mechanical enhancements. If you recall, Miranda (or one of the cerberus personnel) said (and I'm paraphrasing here) "We didn't want a clone. We wanted the exact same Shepard." So, we've got some fellow Talimancers here? Anyone who frequents or Bioware social?

    I want one thing and only one thing in Mass Effect 3: More awkward dancing.

    Also, like others pointed out, Shepard is just a re-animated corpse, not a clone.

    Good list. If all these things make into into ME3, than it will be even awesomer.

    grunt has to live. HE HAS TOO! also you should have to decide on whether to destroy the geth for the quarians or vice versa, and legion or tali will leave your party depending on it.

    imo you should be able to have sex with Grunt

    Correction: Shepard wasn't a clone in Mass Effect 2. It was the same Shepard form ME1 but with a "few upgrades". Don't agree with Tali's face. I don't ever want to see it. While I wouldn't mind seeing what the faces of other Quarians, I think Tali's should be left to be a mystery. As for your crew dying, I think that should be one ending, but it has to be less obvious of that happening. In ME2 it was very easy to keep your crew alive.

    Wait... huh? Sheperd in ME2 isn't a clone, he/she is a biologically/mechanically revived corpse.

    You should be able to pull off a seven way if you play your cards right.
