Your given one goal to choose from; bring the galaxy together again and destroy Cerberus, or join Cerberus and endanger the galaxy yet again to bring it's technology to the supreme.
i see it more as playing origin stories of your companions.
how did grunt get to be the leader of the aralakh company when everyone knows he's a tankborn? how much more of a bad arse does he has to be to overcome that prejudice and become the leader of the most elite squad of krogan military.
how about garrus's days as the archangel on omega? surviving as the most hated vigilante on the most lawless part of the galaxy can't be easy
or even going further back and play the C-Sec days or turian military days.
being the child of matriarch benezia cant be easy for liara. all the expectations and the strive to meet those expectations growing up, that origin store can be interesting too. or even better when she became the shadow broker. that in itself is a whole series of games.
and the best one yet... going back 50,000 years and play as the avatar of ganja.... i mean vengeance himself
you KNOW you want to serve the prothean empire. afterall they are 1 million strong and they OWNED the galaxy
besides how else are you going to get to eat some salarian liver with some chianti.. i mean it's a delicacy right? ...
there are plenty of "origins" content just in the people we've played in the game so content w/o shepard is hardly an obstacle for the ME universe.
