** 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."]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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. Turns out the RandomNumberGod-nature of the store is just a hilariously inept bureaucracy managing the supply chains.

** Partly justified by the way the rest of the writing staff were shut out of the much-detested ending. Unfair with regard to the things that were clearly caused by EA's ExecutiveMeddling.
