*** Certain powers were modified to prevent misuse. Sabotage can turn any Geth against their faction for around 10 seconds. An entire team with Sabotage and you don't have to fire a shot. Bioware made the more powerful Geth enemies have a very short cool down on that, Geth Prime's may only turn against the others for a couple of seconds, and gradually gain immunity if one is hit with it multiple times. Combat Drones and especially Decoy's were extremely effective in distracting enemies, Banshee's in particular are most deadly with their TeleportSpam and would harmlessly bounce off Decoy's looking like they have no idea what to do. The distraction from Decoy's was almost removed altogether, making it one of the most useless powers afterwards.

** Of the five surviving members of Shepard's [=ME1=] six squadmates, four of them -- the Virmire Survivor, Garrus, Tali, and Liara -- can rejoin the Normandy if they survived the previous games. Non-squadmate characters, including Engineer Adams, Doctor Chakwas, and Ken & Gabby can be recruited to take their old posts on the ''Normandy''.

* LondonTown: London (and UK Alliance Headquarters) is hit several moments before the attack on the Vancouver-Seattle Megapolis, with the first trailer showing no less than eight Reapers walking all over it. [[spoiler: It is where Shepard and Anderson make their final push on Earth]].

* RomanceSidequest: UpToEleven in ''Mass Effect 3'', which will resolve all of the romantic conflicts generated in the first two games - that is, if you were not faithful to your romance from ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', there could be sparks flying. The game will also reward you for being faithful to your ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' romance (or ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' romance if you did not romance anyone in the first game). And if you do not romance ''anyone'', [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything the game will notice that, too]].

* RidiculouslyFastConstruction: In one sidequest it takes the Salarians less time to clone the Krogan's Kakliosaur mounts from fossils in massive numbers, train them, and deploy them to the front lines than it does to say it.

Added DiffLines:

* LazyBackup: Zigzagged. There are a number of missions in which you encounter ''[=ME2=]'' squadmates; since the game is a cover-based shooter, they will frequently get entangled in combat situations. Most often, they do so offscreen or during cutscenes... but on two separate occasions you help a biotic character ([[spoiler:Jack and Samara]]) run an EscortMission in which they help defend untrained biotic [=NPCs=] (despite being [=NPCs=] themselves) while Shepard takes on the main body of foes. The weird thing is, the first of these characters (and their escortees) actually contributes to the fight during their mission, while the other just... stands there.

** A cross-series example too. Owning a copy of ''VideoGame/Battlefield3'' on the same system (likely detected through Origin or save data) will unlock a Soldier character in the multiplayer. This cross-series promotion continued, with ''Mass Effect 3'' unlocking a usable [=RIG=] in ''VideoGame/DeadSpace3'', for what is possibly the most literal interpretation of RuleOfThree.
