It could be Bioware, sure. Even so, the Bioware of old, who made BG, wouldn't have given a shit about combat being too difficult.

That was a long time ago, even if everyone from the company at that time was still there today there's no guarantee that things wouldn't have changed. In fact many of the people publicly pushing streamlining scenarios and whatnot are old hat Bioware employees anyway. It's not just the combat though. Remember when you would take your character from the first game into the second one? Not anymore. Their version of roleplaying is turning into Final Fantasy. No more playing as other races. Simplified dialogue system with less variety and choice. The list goes on.

As to where I'm inferring it from, do you remember the horde of threads about how difficult the game was just after it came out? And the three patches that nerfed the difficulty ever single time. The majority of those were the console version owners who were complaining.

I remember everyone bitching about the difficulty, not just console users. It was knee-jerk stupidity based on the fact that people hadn't learned how to exploit mages yet. I don't really see how console users are to blame for the various changes between 1-2 though, Bioware themselves has explained their reasons already and it didn't have anything to do with that. Dragon Age sold a lot of PC copies by the way, EA will definitely be watching and listening to feedback.

q[I love ME2, so I'm not that worried about the streamlining of certain things. I missed the Mako (the Hammerhead is better), and I'm not happy about inventory just vanishing, but I think that in most other areas, ME2 is a better game than ME1. (apart from the story, but it's hard to make the second one just as epic as the first one, storywise.)

I can't say that I loved it but it was a good game in spite of the feature streamlining, not necessarily because of it. The combat was heavily improved but suffered from simplicity at the same time. The controls were still clunky as hell despite having a unified "DO EVERYTHING" button. I think the narrative was awful even for sci-fi trope.
