haha... It's just funny that in the process of criticizing him for a lesser mistake, I made an even greater one.

@Synthballs: 
Thank you, Captain Obvious, but you are defending the guy who misspelled EA.

EA owns Bioware, EA does own ME

@Tylea002:
Which is precisely why they aren't giving Bioware's vision to another one of their developer's new EA wouldn't take that chance with a hit like Mass Effect. Yes, dead space is big, but ME is huge.  I've noticed they walk around it like it was glass.  Bioware is definitely in charge of ME.  Then again that could be because Ray Myuza is a Senior Vice President for EA  and Group General Manager of EA's developers.

@Tylea002:
I think we are thinking of different EA's is there another one on Jupiter that's actually good?  EA is the perfect company to ruin a franchise.  Thankfully they really don't mess with their good developers.  They at least get that.

" It's almost inconceivable that they wouldn't keep it going but with a new crew. Hell a prequel about Shepard's earlier years would be cool. "
Maybe, but it would probably be hard to do given the different origin stories players can choose. "
If they're willing to make one of them canon (probably the default Earthborn/Sole Survivor) it would be doable.  "
They could make three small background scenarios where you choose Earthborn/Spacer/Colonist and then play War Hero/Sole Survivor/Ruthless scenarios.

I don't know; I pretty much hated KOTOR II.  This is an original IP by Bioware--there is no way they would give it up just like that. "
Indeed, KOTOR was another developer making a game that bioware could make better. But Bioware only really makes good RPGs. The other developers could bring new genres of their expertese. I don't think anyone other than Bioware should even try making another RPG-style game (even though it's barely an RPG, but whatever), though I'd love to see, for example, Telltale do some Adventure Game on a Mass Effect minor planet. Or even some of the guys who worked on splinter cell making a C-Sec game. Things like this, rather than other developers taking the full Mass Effect burden. I'd just love some different views and explorations. "
If done right, that would be cool.  But the only reason another developer would pick up the franchise (and pay the royalties) is if they knew it was going to be a hit, but the same conundrum that appears in Movie games appears here: why make a great game that will make a little money, when you can make a crappy game whose name will sell itself and make bukus of money?

@TheDudeOfGaming: 
I would like to see more RPG mechanics.  ME was ok in the RPG department, and ME2 was just plain unsatisfying.  I want to customize my characters out the wazoo.
