Fair enough, and really wish they would have stayed closer to the premise of the first game. but that's a whole other thing... (forget who but there was a 30~ish part series breaking down the series.For me none of those endings are valid. So ending it at a logical point where Illusive Man says "Earth... I wish you could see it like I do, Shepard... It's so... perfect..." makes sense. There should've been no Star Brat nonsense after that and it would've been a perfect ending to the trilogy.
I'll quote something I read a few yeas ago.
"Imagine if you're watching Lord of The Rings (the whole trilogy), and Frodo and Sam finally make it into the Volcano. Only instead of getting the wonderful thrill of finally witnessing what you've been anticipating for the past 9 hours (or if you're reading books some days or weeks) you are instead rudely interrupted by a ghostly vision of Sauron who says everything is your fault, not his. He is cleansing you of your warring because humans and elves cannot co-exist together (despite the fact that Aragon is marrying one!). He says that you must REPENT! The cycle must end! You must jump into the boiling pit of lava where magic will fix all of our problems. No one gets to kill Sauron for all his crimes, everyone gets nuked as a result of Frodo jumping into the volcano, and you have a choice between red, green or blue lava! The red nukes all! But also nukes the orcs! The blue gives Frodo control over the orcs! Green merges man with elf with orc!"
