I just had an amazing idea!

Bioware should make a mass effect game for the 3DS or PSP2, that plays like Valkyria Chronicles.
Instead of the Gallia army you play as the Alliance army. Then you outfit your army with: Turians, Krogens, solarans, quarians, humans and they all have different personallies and backstorys.

It's two great tastes that taste great together

I prefer the idea that involves "All Units!"
 
Well maybe not but an RTS with more focus on squad tactics would be my kind of "tastes that taste good together".

I like this idea. Except that Valkyria Chronicles already exists. And I would rather play it on a console.
 
But good idea!

So what if VC already exists? Didn't stop Alpha Protocol from coming out in a post Mass Effect world.

Well, Alpha Protocol had a pretty different (and in some ways better) approach. In this case I would want to see the ME game build upon what Valkyria did in new and interesting ways, not just play like a full-conversion mod.

You would think wouldn't you. But some people would just say "hey its better because its Mass Effect, yay!!!!!" Which is not an appropriate attitude.

lol solerans. And I have a feeling Bioware does things better when their limit on the technology they can use isn't as small as the the 3DS or the PSP2 (I highly doubt it can do PS3 graphics)

This is the beggining of the decline when people start throwing out random ideas like this. Because y'know, it worked so well for Halo. 
 
What next? Mass Effect Babies?

I'd only want them to do it if they thought they could pull it off with very high quality, I'm not sure if it's the kind of game Bioware would excel at making.

Problem is that I doubt Bioware would be interested so it becomes a case of EA getting a low level handheld developer to have a go with the franchise.  Remember those DS and PSP Assassins Creed games?

*nitpick* And you do of course realize that the Alliance military is pretty much human only, right?
