Mass Persona 4

So I read that some folks have issues with how BioWare made Mass Effect 2's combat and equipment mechanics simpler and 'more Gears of Wars-y' and demanded Mass Effect 3 to be more 'RPG-like'.

BioWare responded by saying they were aware of the criticism and will change it again for Mass Effect 3 to make it less action and more RPG
 
 
Personally, I'm into Mass Effect for the story and characters and don't really care much for the gameplay. However, when I heard that BioWare would make it more RPG, this image of a Persona 4-like 'team HUD' just appeared in my head and I couldn't resist drawing it. The idea of Mass Effect becoming a Persona-like RPG makes me giggle. 
 



 
Note: I love the Mass Effect series and the Persona series as well. I hope there won't be people who completely miss the point and think I'm trying to make fun of either one of those two franchises.

Garrus and Tali? I approve! 
I feel that party may struggle though, needs a healer.

@Shirogane: Mordin = healer

As long as Tali gets overload ability then we should be good, everything bleeds when it doesn't have shielding.

Not enough girlfriends on the team.

That was hilarious!  I've always hated how in Mass Effect you could have only two squadmates follow you around and adding a third would really spice up some of the encounters.   
 
I don't really have a problem with the watering down of the RPG mechanics but i wish there was more weapon and armor customization.  I think they could've thrown it a few more weapon models and armor pieces, if they just did that and kept the combat then i'd be happy.

Combat gameplay can only get better. And saying planet probing is better than the Mako is like saying catshit is better than dogshit. And don't get me started on hacking. There's a solid 1/3 of a game in ME2, they can do whatever they want to the other 2/3. 
PS don't forget Maranda's buck teeth in her profile picture.
