I wish the interviewee had talked about specific issues and why they didn't fix them. Thee game's budget was supposedly more than double ME3's - surely you can't blame all the problems on resources?
Several issues likely prevent that. Publishers have very tight NDAs. Usually they won't even let developers say as much as what was in the article. Even if it was gross mismanagement on the part of the publisher which put too much strain on the developer, it is highly unlikely that the developer would ever be able to tell the whole/part of the tale.
Even though I have been largely disappointed by the more recent Bioware offerings, I always remember that they work for a publisher and that publisher's prime and only goal is to make money.
