    Umm, I saw a female Krogan. She is talking next to the Shaman. She looks male, but you can kind of hear in her voice she is female.
    Also, you might have noticed that Quarian partymember, Tali? It had breasts.
     
    But yeah, where are the female Turians, one of the citadel races to boot! Also, did anyone see a female Salarian, or are they a-sexual, seeing as they talk about eggs?

    they said on the the krogan home world that no one gets to see or enter the female camp. I think they just stay on their home world under the protection of the males.

    @Toxic: Yeah, that's true. But it still feels like a bad excuse, doesn't it? I mean it fits the story, but I don't think it'd be impossible to show some of them femmes. Not talking about the lesbians. The women. In French.

    They didn't take the time to design them so they came up with stupid excuses. 
    Not seeing the female of one race is a nice touch (it actually makes sense for the Krogan), but all of them except the quarians ? I mean come on ! How lazy is that ?

    @graniteoctopus: I'm pretty sure the reason is because they want to save space on the disk by not having too many of different models.  They re-use species models, so they'll vary the skin of a Salarian, Turian, Elcor, or whatever, but they'll not have to create a new animation setup (assuming they need to move differently with the different frame).  It's probably the same reason they designed the Asari as all female, as an idea that stems from the limited space.  Since we expect to see diverse humans, they sort of concentrated resources there.
     
    Still, yeah, it would be cool to see some.  Did get a new Quarian model, though.

    I know nothing about Mass Effect so I do not know if there is a parallel here, but it reminds me something about Star Trek. 
     
    Star Trek has two types of aliens. The ugly kind with lots of face prosthetics (Naussican, Klingon) and makeup and the pretty kind, with cute spots (Trill) or womanly powers of emotion and empathy (Betazoid). Needless to say, the supermodels that constituted many Trek actresses were put in the pretty alien roles, with female 'ugly' aliens ranging from rare (Klingon) to nonexistant (Naussican!). 
      
    Of course, in a videogame everyone can be pretty, but I don't think that's Mass Effect's style.

    He meant you didn't get to see an unsuited quarian in ME2. Even though they hint towards it for about half the damn Tali storyline.
     
    Also, yeah I would have liked to see a female krogan, just because. Also, I know that the lack of salarian females is explained by a patriarchal culture, but I was surprised to learn that there are turian females. Why did Bioware skimp out on females of any race? It's not like female characters means instant rule 34. Wait, forget I said that.

    The Turians are the biggest problem, especially since they have no excuse after Garrus' tale about serving on a Turian ship in ME2.

    Maybe they are some female ones, but they look too much like the male ones for humans to notice the difference.

    You know, not all alien species have such stark visible differences in gender like we humans do. Look at nearly any animal on our own planet. Without getting down and looking for their dangly bits (on those species that have visible ones), it takes specific knowledge to be able to differentiate a male from a female. Sometimes males are bigger, sometimes females are bigger, there can be slight or obvious color differences, or outward differences that only an expert can spot under close examination.
     
    You very well may have interacted with females of many races on the Citadel and not known for those very reasons.  Or in simpler terms: Softer, higher voices and boobs don't always make a girl.

    I'm thinking that would be especially unlikely seeing as only around 1 in 1000 children survive due to the Genophage. Therefore any that do live, especially females, would be guarded and sheltered on an extreme level. I don't even know if Shepard with his special status (if Wrex lived) would be allowed around them.

    Fail. If you listen to the bachelor party you will understand. All species see them as alluring to them, like a mind control or some shit. I refer you to an old red dwarf episode. buh bye.

    @Phaseshift:  What, are people still using "fail"?  :) 
     
    I think you're trying to refer to series 6's Psirens, there. 

    I refer to the difference between the reality of putting together a video game, and the writing people do later that's inspired the absence of features that would have taken up too much space.  Whether or not that was the real reason behind their behavior I don't know, but your use of my quote is a bit strange.  Ideas ARE sometimes inspired by limitations :)

    Not mentioned if there's female drell as far as I've heard, though the drell are reptilian and it's unlikely there is no females due to that, where as something of a more simple life form may be asexual.
    I think Bioware was lazy not to have Turian women around, I understand the society to be very military service imposing on the younger turians but that isn't much of an excuse either yeah.
    Hanar I wouldn't be surprised if they were asexual - really I don't want to know about them.

    @lucas_kelly: Plain lazy?
     
    The game is on two dics. They have added two new species, batarians and vochra to be on the disc, well three if you count the rachni things and male quarians are also in the game, we have a two drells.  They have limited space, its not that they don't want to add that in, its just they are limited to the space they have.
     
    I'll be complaining when ME3 comes out and their are no children or any of the things listed...

    Thane had a drellian wife. Else he wouldn't have a drell son.
     
    Also, you can romance Thane as female shepard, so it's pretty obvious Thane's a dude in both name and function.

    " You know, not all alien species have such stark visible differences in gender like we humans do. Look at nearly any animal on our own planet. Without getting down and looking for their dangly bits (on those species that have visible ones), it takes specific knowledge to be able to differentiate a male from a female. "
    This isn't true for most mammalian species. The higher up animals have different faces, physiques, sizes, features, and especially behaviors that separate male from female. This is obvious in cattle and deers, but if you spend enough time around cats and dogs you can tell their gender without having to reference the genitals.
     
    That said, there's no excuse to not have female or child aliens. DO IT BIOWARE.
