But if you want to talk technical your estimation of the speed of FTL in the mass effect universe is incredibly far off.

How is it far off? It is spot on.

Average stellar distance in Milkyway Galaxy = 3.5 light years.
It takes your ship less then 2 seconds to get from one star system to another in the game (I timed it). So, lets be fair and even say it takes you 3.5 seconds (over estimation).

That means you are traveling 1 light year per second.
The Milkyway galaxy is 100,000 light years in diameter approximately. At a speed of 1 light year per second:
100,000 light years / 1 light year per second = 100,000 seconds.
100,000 seconds / 60 seconds per minute / 60 minutes per hour = 27.77 hours.

Again, that is over estimation of the time. And again, even if I was off by a factor of 10, 277.7 hours is only 11.58 days. No very long.
Even if I am off by a factor of 100, 115.8 days, not very long.
Even if I am off by a factor of 1000, 1158 days; pretty damn short amount of time to get all the way across the galaxy to be honest.
