Honestly, I think EA is starting to wear off on Bioware. I'd like to think they are able to produce all these games (for PC too! I know they are a PC developer..) because they are with EA now and have a much bigger staff to work with, but in all honesty, I think they are just streamlining the fuck out of their games. Don't get me wrong, I'm the biggest Mass Effect fanboy, but they streamlined the SHIT out of ME2. And Dragon Age (on consoles anyways..) just felt like a quick redo of the Mass Effect series, basically a Swords and Magic style Mass Effect. I thought the first DA was decent but I don't really have any high expectations from DA2. Or ME3 for that matter.
I'm not trying to flame Bioware by any means, I can't really even talk on that count as I've never really played Baldur's Gate or KOTOR. I just hate to see EA wearing off on Bioware, the same way Activision is wearing off on Blizzard. It's like having a band you really love make mediocre CD's every year, or one really fuckin' good one once every 5 years. But the realist in me constantly reminds me that video games are a business. Business is money.
