Games As I made very clear in my thorough review of Mass Effect 2, I'm a huge BioWare fan. This relationship got very, very cloudy when BioWare released Dragon Age II, a rush job with no story and atrocious gameplay. Mass Effect 3 looked like redemption - until I hit the terrible, terrible ending. The criticism of the ending has been so immense and consistent, BioWare is contemplating changing it. Of course, this story is riddled with spoilers, so be warned.

Except fanboys. And people wonder why Lucas intensely dislikes these people.

Except that star wars must have been the most daft sci fi series in history.
Hollywood has the tendency to take the stupidest screenplay's out there and pump millions of dollars in them when there are much better available.
Like Disney's new Carter new movie. It's not plausible. This is what they don't get, although it is sci fi it must still be plausible otherwise it is fantasy.
Take chronicles of riddick. You seriously had to have flying ghosts in them?
And star wars. The main bad dude have to had that ridiculous costume he can hardly breath comfortable in.
Guys (trained by furry little ninja dogs) running around in light sabers fending off laser rounds.

yeh man, how dare they:-)
take another example. War of the worlds
You should think that aliens that cross the galaxy to reach us (an apparently lots of other planets), then be able to survived hibernated and cocooned in the soil for thousands of years to at least have biotechnology to withstand earth diseases when they eventually surface. Or at least where bio suits or something. But no, they died, spectacularly soon.
Good sci is always sort off plausible or logical.
