@XNaphryz: Exactly! I think people, especially critics need to understand that it's not about the happy ending, or to "save the princess". I prefer sad and more realist endings. What a lot of people in the entertainment industry need to understand about fans is that what will really want in a game and story like this is closure and to know that what we did, even if we die in the game. We need to know what companions lived and died. We need to have an epilogue and mass effect 3 had no epilogue. No closure. That's the problem here, not the sad ending but the lack of a true ending that tells us what happens next.
