IMO they screwed up the DLC. the refuse choice should have been you destroy the starchild much like how you freed geth from the old machine control. after you destroy the starchild, each reaper ship would regain their own collective consciousness w/o the starchild control. also each reaper ship would represent a species that was destroyed in the past so some will sympathize with the current cycle, and some would want to destroy the current cycle.
THAT would be a "choice" with a possible outcome. by refusing in the way described by the DLC, the current cycle is guaranteed to lose... also the mass relays would be preserved if you destroy only the starchild.
