This is some Olympic gold medal levels of mental gymnastics. Wth?!
No sorry, what this is, is diehard fans not being able to accept that their fav game is/was a total mess of poor game design and lazy development standards or duck-taped together by inexperience devs. Also, the majority of Bioware's original staff left along time ago. Bioware is not Bioware anymore, they're like everything EA touches, a hollow shell of its former self that uses established brand names to peddle half arsed sequels and reboots.
The gaming industry is in the trash state it is because gamers (such as your self) keep defending and accepting lower and lower quality and standards and then go on to accuse others who wont stand for it, that they're entitled and expect to much or got duped by hype.
