** Casey Hudson stated that the plot would not be solved by using a "long lost Reaper off-button" and the endings not be like simple A, B, or C endings but "have a lot more sophistication and variety in them". But in actuality, it is hard to describe [[spoiler:the circumstances of the Crucible's discovery and its eventual function]] as anything but a "long lost Reaper off-button" [[spoiler:even with a heavy element of what can only be described as "space magic" added to it]], and the ending is determined by a LastSecondEndingChoice, where the exactly three different choices is offered to the player.

** The Ending itself.[[spoiler: Originally, Shepard would hear a different explanation for the Reapers motives, which also tied in with the Dark Energy subplot established in Mass Effect 2. Ultimately in the end, Shepard would be given two choices - destroy the Reapers and look for another solution, or agree to allow all life to be harvested.]]

** Datamining has uncovered a [[http://www.holdtheline.com/threads/datamining-the-trilogy-aka-things-that-were-cut.2073/ massive amount of cut material]]. Notably: Javik and Eden Prime originally had much larger roles in the story (Likely cut once it became clear that Javik would be DLC), the Cerberus coup arc went ''much'' differently ([[spoiler:Kai Leng was nowhere in sight and Thane's death was much more heroic]]), and Thessia was going to have a Virmire-esque decision at the end to save a squadmate. Probably the absolute biggest change was that [[spoiler: Javik was originally meant to ''be'' the Catalyst, as in "the final missing piece of the Crucible that would activate it", not "the leader of the Reapers who offers you a choice."]]

* BillingDisplacement: An unusual instance of this applying to a composer; despite Music/ClintMansell's involvement with the soundtrack being hyped up pre-release, in actual fact he contributed just ''two'' pieces to the soundtrack; the duo of Sascha Dikiciyan and Cris Velasco were more the game's main composers, with Lair of the Shadow Broker composer Christopher Lennertz also making a return, along with series veteran Sam Hulick.

** An N7 Fury talks with an Alliance requisition officer, discussing the new gear she's supposed to get. The officer ends up delivering a Graal Spike Thrower VII, thermal clip packs, and strength enhancers - all useless to a light biotic class such as hers. Turns out the RandomNumberGod-nature of the store is just a hilariously inept bureaucracy managing the supply chains.

Meanwhile, the requisitions officer indignantly tells her that she should be thankful and that the Krogan soldiers he's dealing with would love a new Graal Spike Thrower... and then mention how he hopes that they could use those biotic amps he sent them.
