The poor action in ME1 was a disappointment, and at least for me ultimately made it kind of a let down when I knew I was coming up on some long action sequence. Compared with Gears of War, which had more or less the same gameplay approach, it really felt clunky. I wouldn't want it to be as full on shooter like GoW, but more responsive controls and a smoother cover system would have gone a long way. The very plain, repetitive levels didn't help much either. When it comes down to it, if it weren't for the quality of the narrative it would have been a very poor game.

I'd prefer it if they could make the action gameplay a lot more fluid and just fun in general, but failing that I'd rather they just ditched it entirely. Something like VATS from Fallout would be excellent, or even just going back to the Kotor style, even though I'm not a big fan of RPGs in general.
