Did the grandpa at the end make it all up as a story?
A lot of people seem to hate the "stargazer" scene. I can see why if you look at it that way, or the "it's-all-been-a-(true)-story" point of view. When the scene started, I thought that briefly, but I prefer to think about it as a seen that's now x-years in the future. In movies when it suddenly says "10 years later", you don't think "What?! The past 1.5 hours was just a story!?". Hopefully my thoughts make sense.
I also thought the dialog in that scene was very well done (and it's Buzz Aldrin for those that didn't pay attention).
EDIT. After reading more about it, I can kinda see what the fuss is about. So he says "one more story" and then the game goes back before the final mission, basically saying that anything at that point is being told as a story (although technically you get to "write" the story). But then also, what the heck does it matter!? Anything you do is going to get destroyed anyways. Oh the other hand, now that the mass relays are destoryed, the Krogan wont be moving around anytime soon so curing the genophage was pointless.Edited by kurt1288 - 3/12/12 at 1:49am
