Found a nice video that does a good job of showing what's wrong with the ME3 ending beyond the obvious. It's a bit lengthy, but really gets to the heart of the matter.

Seen that one! It's good. I like it how the guy sees that the worst of the entire ending (among basically about a zillion other things) is the breaking of narrative coherence.

Imagine Jack Bauer stepping into the scene with Luke and Vader fighting. He shoots a bullet through Vader's lightsaber, destroying it, and then he shoots Vader in the knee. Vader then tried to do a Force Grip on Jack, but Jack ignores it saying "You master the Force. I master the Physics!" and with it he puts a bullet between Vader's eyes. The end.

The breaking of narrative coherence is no art; no clever writing. In fact, it's downright wrong and bad and, worst of all, it can collapse an entire fictional world to hell -- which is clearly what happened to the ME universe for many if not most fans.

And I trembled.
