At least in mass effect 2 you had some effect on which characters lived and which died, how many characters, how your relationships played into that. All of the changes on this are cosmetic (doesn't matter who you pick. Doug/Carley HAVE to get randomly shot in the face by lily who HAS to go batshit crazy). I guess for something winning so many game of the year awards I expected a lot more depth.
in mass effect 2 you had to be pure renegade or pure paragon to get everybody to survive therefore making the choices of paragon/renegade and relationships meaningless (except to you personally)
