Yes, they're still "out there" but without the Citadel's relay they're really not a threat. Yeah, they can eventually get back to us, but it'll take centuries - which is why your character at the end says something like "And when they come, we'll be ready for them."

Um, you destroyed one Reaper/Reaver. Out of like, hundreds. The ending is basically "Hey, good job! Now go out and kill the rest plz kthx." There was also the whole Cerberus sidestory which I'm assuming will be concluded in ME2.
ME was planned as a trilogy so the ending didn't conclude the main story arc (reaper threat as a whole) but that is a valid way to tell a story. You complaining about the ending is like complaining that LOTR Movie 1 didn't conclude the story... until movie 3 ;p
It didn't conclude anything? Did you even see the ending? What didn't it conclude?
What I always wondered is why some RPG type games don't use a sort of checklist at the beginning, did you kill or join forces with so and so. This way they could still tell their story, offer many more alternative plots points and not worry about conflicting pasted Saves, whom might have modded and broken compatibility.I remember playing a game a while back that did this. I just can't remember what the heck it was now. I'm gonna have to do some searching to see if I can find it.
The problem is that these choices wouldn't make....True but it could be like a custom character screen, where you pick and choose, it seems a possibly neat way to keep previous content building on itself.
Didn't know that. I didn't use any DLC in my playthrough.Sorry, I should have been more clear, that's not really a choice which is a spoiler but more my interpretation of a possibly. Nothing like that is actually said in game. I was trying and trying not to spoiler it, just saying it might not be written in stone, in the future.

I'm generally inclined to agree. I much prefer that every game be fully self-contained and that the developers don't hold anything back for potential sequels. That said, I really like the idea of long-term consequences. Hopefully ME2 can live up to the promise.

New Game+ lets you start a new game with a character you already completed the game with once. In the first ME it let you keep your levels, gear, skills, etc., so I'd assume they're doing the same thing here.

Oh and you know the age limit about Warden's could be broken, depending on if you got Warden's Keep and showed mercy to a certain NPC who actually starts working for you on this very thing.
Just hope they can clean up the console issues that crippled the PC release. Worst of all the lack of editor which can normally be used to fix broken open world games, even DA has benefited greatly.
They would have been much better off offering Turn based or with Spacebar as in KotOR style combat for PC at least.
The concept just seems odd, why kill off/lose your whole crew, if the carrying over from a previous Save, when you could just add new NPCs to choose from?
