What they really need help at doing is not rehashing the crap out of the environments in the game

That definitely bothered me, but I was replaying Mass Effect earlier, and it struck me as odd that I don't remember hearing lots of the same complaints for it.

Every single "ship" mission used the same layout. All of the interior missions used one of I think two (possibly three?) different layouts. So when you are doing your 20th+ side mission, seeing the exact same layout started to get quite stale.

Was there the same cricisms of ME1 and I missed them, or did everyone give it a pass for some reason?

Yeah, there was a lot of terrain recycling in ME1 (and ME2, but ME1 was a worse offender). Some of it makes sense though. If I'm on a tiny cookie cutter outpost out in the middle of nowhere I don't expect a uniquely designed station: I expect something modular. Prefab modular construction makes sense in the Mass Effect universe, but doesn't in a fantasy setting.
