I also don't understand why people liked Mass Effect 2 either. The story was total B.S. Completely filler. Nothing to do with the actual plot of the story arc. It didn;t go anywhere either.
If the lead writer of Mass Effect 1 had continued. We would have seen one of the greatest trilogies of all time. That original Mass Effect, built up such a "mystique". Was unbelievable. They should have carried on that epicness and exploration.
We would have had more of this below.....
(note the me3 title has nothing to do with anything)
Whatever you end up doing, as there are plenty of great suggestions already in this thread, do NOT forget to give her a good ol' slap on the ass after you're done for the day. Then she'll know you mean business.
