ME3 is a solid game despite the ending. Spoilery discussion of the ending is below:
I had two complaints about the ending:

2) *major spoilers* StarKid comes out of nowhere, and his motivations make no sense whatsoever. We're supposed to believe that the Reapers [synthetics] wipe out advanced organics in order to prevent other synthetics from wiping out organics? Why do they care? Why preserve primitive organics if you're just going to wipe them out later? Do the Reapers have some sort of free will, or are they just tools of StarKid? Where are the organics that created StarKid / Reapers, and what happened to them?

Well, the "motivations" make sense

No matter HOW much you tell someone NOT to do something, or HOW much evidence you throw at them... someone's going to do it anyway. So no matter what they would say or do, someone would start creating synthetic beings and the chances are high that things would hit the fan and they'd just decide to wipe out 100% of all organic life.

And if the fear is creating synthetics will wipe out 100% of all organic life... then for immortal (or insanely long-"lived" beings) then wiping out 90% and making them rebuild is probably logical.

Organic life will continue... but will just be starting from ground-zero every few millennium. And to you, something that exists for many MANY millennium, it probably doesn't seem so bad that they keep getting knocked down.

For your dog, it probably sees it as an ETERNITY when his master has left him home alone. When, to the master, it was just an hour or so to run some errands and buy friggin dog food.
