I have two things for us all to ponder regarding Mass Effect 3. Both questions are open to debate, and of course, I will share my views on each of them.
Should there be NEW romance options in ME3?
This is something I have been thinking about alot. Keep in mind BioWare have specifically stated this will be a trilogy, and low and behold... we are now awaiting the final installment. So surely at this point in Shepards story... he/she would be tying up loose ends rather than creating new distractions. It makes sense that the surviving love interest from ME1 (whether that be Kaidan, Ashley or Liara) would figure more into the third installment, and it will be interesting to see how they approach any relationships from the second game (considering any number of characters could be dead, and also the fact you can cheat on your partner from the first game).
Who will be the main party in ME3?
Another almost impossible question to really answer, but it is definately worthy of debate. Again, to me, it wouldn't make alot of sense for Shepard to make a squad comprising of new characters. At this point you'd expect him/her to stick with people he/she can trust. But there's also a (very rare) possibility that everyone but Liara and Ashley/Kaidan are still alive at this point. I'm sure Shepard will return in the third game, but who will BioWare bring along with him/her? It just seems too far-fetched to think that BioWare would really have the time and resources to include a fully flexible squad depending on who lived and who died in previous games.
- I want to be clear too: for these questions I am not asking what your preferred squad/romance would be, I'm asking what you think the squad/romance WILL be.
