Wow, that last room with the three Ethereals is just complete b.s. I just won after reloading 4 times, and won out of shear luck, let's just say all I could do is basically revive my Sniper and let her Double Tap everything in the room that she could see, because everyone else was Mind Control fodder.
My Chosen One, who had 98 Will got Mind Controlled right off the bat, then my Assault next, who had a mind shield! It's like the thing is worthless beyond anything.
Any tips for my next run? Basically I think that the only important thing will is for is that last damn room, so I plan on getting Iron Will ASAP.

Any tips? Yeah! Focus on the Uber Ethereal. If he goes down, you win. At worst you should be down 3 guys, which should leave you with 3 others ... more than enough to finish the job if they're all high ranking soldiers with top-notch equipment (which they should be, by that point).
You only need to kill the main ethereal, after you do that all the other enemies just die. At least on normal, it's pitifully easy. You can move your troops to the first piece of cover in the room without triggering the enemies. Get your guys on or near that cover without triggering the enemies, and get your snipers set up--hopefully you have two. Then run an assault guy or support guy forward to reveal the enemies. You could use a heavy with a shredder rocket to soften up the chief ethereal, then have your snipers shoot with headshot, then have your other guys finish it off. The end.
I had everyone sitting outside the room on overwatch, sent in my support and then ran back out again once I saw how many etherals there was.
They came running and mind controlled my psi armor guy and my support, I thought it was all over. I then run and gunned one of the controllers and only had one guy mind controlled.
With my last move I run and gunned blindly into where I thought they where at, I ended up beside the boss and then rapid fired him into oblivion, didn't even realise at the time that would end the game..
Just made everyone in your team wear ghost armor, bunch up before going in the room. Everybody, except your chosen one, activate ghost armor, dash in and get in position. Next turn, activate ghost again, kill anything you want or go straight for uber.
I expect more from this so-called last boss/room after read so many topics about this final section. But, well, kinda disappointed though
