There's one thing I found really interesting on this

From the Illusive Man: Reaper IFF

This email would have been received if Shepard left Legion behind on the Derelict Reaper in the mission Reaper IFF:[1]

*ENCRYPTED TRANSMISSION*

From: Illusive Man

Shepard,

I'm pleased that you were able to recover the Reaper IFF, and I've sent EDI all the necessary protocols to get it integrated successfully into the Normandy's systems. With luck, this will give us the ability to get through the Omega-4 relay and take the fight to the Collectors on our own terms.

It's unfortunate that the intact geth was left on the ship, but I understand that you were pressed for time. If you do get additional chances to retrieve technology, I'd suggest taking what you can.


Looks like we were going to have the option of leaving Legion behind on the Derelict Reaper. If it was in the game, I wonder how it would have played out in ME3, seeing how Legion gets blown up along with the ship.



If anyone finds more removed content, please post them here, it's really interesting to see what these games could've had, especially ME3.

I don't have links but a while back I read about cut content from ME1- there was supposed to be another 'main mission' planet that was cut fairly late in development as they got crunched by their release date. Could've been Calaeston, which is mentioned in commercial trailer that plays at the game's main menu.

Also, Therum was supposed to be a good bit longer but part of the level was cut.

(From what I understand, despite a lengthy development ME1 still wound up being quite rushed in the end- that's part of the reason it was so badly optimized on 360.)

Yes it was Calaeston. The building was reused for the final area in Bring Down the Sky.

I also heard that it was planned that we were going to have the option of being able to save both Ash and Kaidan.

Don't lie, you'd go through with the romance, you wouldn't tell anyone but you'd do it.

Sort of. Therum wasn't originally meant to be used. Liara's little recruitment mission was originally supposed to come with an extensive area which got reworked in Bring Down the Sky. Something about a seedy bar/community. They ended up cutting that mission to shreds for whatever reason and all that's left of it is the ending run to fetch Liara. Hell, a lot of the early trailers show off some of the scrapped content, like the interrupt system and a side mission about endangered colonists.

A shame ME is so mod unfriendly. Restoration mods can really smooth out a lot of details the developers can't get to for one reason or another.

Jack, Jacob, Grunt and Zaeed all have dialogue of them fighting in London that was cut. It's on YouTube.
