This post will contain spoilers for the ending of the Mass Effect trilogy, and the underground caverns section of Dust, including the second boss of the game. Don't read anymore unless you've played both of them, or you simply don't care about spoilers.
Okay, so shortly after you defeat the first boss in Dust, you end up visiting an underground cavern community where you meet a bunch of people who are quite alarmed that the source of their water has dried up. One of them is already quite ill, and without the water, there's a good chance that he will die. You agree to see what's going on with the water, and eventually meet a deity who is responsible for the flow of water in the underground village.
Once you meet her, she explains that she turned off the water because of an evil general who was using the water to support his campaign to kill the underground cavern citizens. She's decided that she didn't want the underground community to be killed by the general and his army, so she blocked the flow of water to everyone, in the hopes that the general and his men would die of thirst. The deity explains that she would rather people in the underground community die, if it means that the general won't be able to kill people in the underground community.
To put that in internet meme speak: "Yo dawg, I heard you don't want to be slaughtered by a genocidal army, so I arranged for your community and the genocidal army to both die of thirst, so you won't be killed by a genocidal army."
Anyhow, Dust then argues with her that it's a stupid plan, and it doesn't make any sense. Then they fight, Dust wins, she comes to her senses, and she agrees that she was crazy to think that way in the first place.
So, did anyone else go through this section of the game and get reminded of ME3?
