Actually, once you beat the game you can't get any new inner circle quests (and I'm not sure if you can continue any that you have already started or not). So best to wrap those and any conversations with companions or advisors before beating the game as they become considerably less chatty once you beat the game (one unique dialogue based on one ending event and then nothing) up prior to beating the game.

Ah, but thats just your companions personal quests. Not sure why Bioware did it like that, wouldn't it be better to allow chatting with companions after the game was beat...weird.
The companion personal quests are the best non-storyline quests in the game, so yeah finishing them off first is probably a good idea. As for why Bioware did it this way, I imagine part of it was to reduce the number of variables for the companion dialogues and also so you can't change a companion's opinion of you after you have had their epilogue talk in the end game feast. So now you are Varric's friend and you cannot change that since he has made plans based on that fact.

Also just remembered that if you don't recruit certain companions by certain points in the storyline, you can lose their recruitment quests for good. None are too strict though.

Damn game has completely locked up my PS3 twice now. I hate having to turn it off without shutting it down properly. Plus, it did it last night right in the middle of saving, so hopefully I didn't lose much progress.
I chose to align with the mages over the Templars. I'm a mage, so of course I did! Cassandra seems pissed, though.
Time to get back to side quests.

hawke didn't feel tacked on at all and i thought his involvement was fine

Yeah I didn't think Hawke was tacked on at all either. His involvement was perfectly reasonable as was his disappearance given what happened at the end of Dragon Age 2 and how Cassandra was investigating how it happened and who to blame.

later you find out hawke had nothing to fear from cassandra. cassandra wanted the hero of ferelden or hawke to lead the inquisition its why she was looking for hawke. and i'm sorry i cant hand wave dissapearing when the world is in danger. the hero of ferelden has a much better excuse for being no where near this game. given what the antagonist can do to wardens.

Hawke when to Weisshaupt, I think its a perfectly legit reason for him not to stick around. There can only be on protagonist that represents the player so Hawke sticking around would be very awkward.

Yeah had that happen to me a few times while I was playing on PS3. The few times it crashed while I was saving, it turned out fine, but it was annoying when I had several in a single day.

And you chose poorly. :p You should have gone with the Templars because their leader (post recruitment quest), Ser Barris, is a complete bad ass, which is much better than Fiona the stupid who you sadly never get the opportunity to judge for her part in causing the deaths of thousands of mages.

Hawke was investigating the red lyrium that the Templars were using before anyone else even knows that the Templars were taking the stuff. He just went off the radar so that the Red Templars wouldn't find him (at least in the DA2 Templar ending, don't know what he says if you side with the Mages).Hawke was investigating what he thought was the most significant threat relative to the Mage-Templar war (Templars going crazy and gaining god like powers), and then he gets called in by Varric when Varric thinks that the Inquisition needs Hawke's help.

Went through Emprise du Lion and finished off the last three dragons (making 10/10) and did not get the trophy for slaying all ten dragons because it is apparently glitched on every system. One of the dragons doesn't raise the counter so it says I've only killed 9 for the trophy, but my journal says I killed all ten. Come on Bioware...

If you have a save that is prior to killing any dragon load it up and kill a dragon again and the trophy should pop. Apparently the description is wrong and it is kill 10 dragons across playthroughs and not in a single playthrough.

Yeah I read that somewhere too. I'll do that sometime this week.
