And as far as the ending goes, it was every bit as lame as Mass Effect's. The only reason one created an uproar and the other didn't, is that at least in AC's case, there was never the expectation of being able to affect anything.
That's part of it, but there's a much, MUCH bigger issue there that you're ignoring.
Nobody gave two shits about Desmond. (spoiler) So him dying at the end doesn't bother anybody in the slightest.
People who loved Mass Effect CARED about what would happen to Shepard, and to Garrus, and to Wrex, and to Tali, and to Liara, etc. And in the initial version, they got nothing. No closure, zilch. (it's not that much better in the Extended Cut. One picture per character, but it's more than there was initially.)
Had I given two shits about Desmond, the ending would have pissed me off far more than it did. As it is, I was more like "wow, really? That's how you end it after making me sit through this horseshit for FIVE fucking games??"
Really the only thing that pissed me off was that I wasn't even offered the choice. The cutscene made the choice for me.
