SO i just finished up ME2 and loved every second of it, but my favorite character, Tali died. I chose her as the specialist and she was my romance option. I reloaded the suicide mission and I really want her to survive, but she is still selected as the specialist. Is there any way i can save her?

Who did you select as Fireteam leader? If you didn't choose Garrus, Miranda, or Jacob, tech specialists pay the price.

Yea, that'll get her killed - the only way to save her is by loading up a save before you went into the Omega-4.

Replaying the mission means the choice is already made for Fire Team / Specialist I'm afraid.

You really chose Thane as Fireteam leader?

@General_D23:
are you disagreeing with my judgement of Thane's superb badassery sir?

@TheDeadComedian:
Heh, no, he is extremely badass. While very far behind Tali and Mordin as my favorite characters, he's still very well up there. 
 
Still, one of the points he makes when you talk to him is how he's never worked with anyone before (same reason Zaeed and Samara aren't good choices), so, while he is a hell of a cool character, he just isn't leadership material.

You made a grave mistake. Hopefully you had a save you can reload before that choice. I was so paranoid about sending garrus, tali, mordin anywhere on that final mission because I had heard so much about characters dying. I ended up sending the characters I really didn't like to do the dangerous stuff.

And both were loyal? That sounds extremely odd. Off the top of my head, there aren't any other variables in reguards to Tech Specialist survival other then loyalty and good choices in picking them.

I had legion go in the vents and get shot in the face, while having Miranda as squad leader. Did all of the loyalty missions also. Maybe that is a different case though.

Hmm. How many upgrades did you research (right on down to health and weapon bonuses; general idea), who else died, was Legion's sniper rifle obtained, and how much time did it take you escort the specialists through the vents?
