1: Garrus & Ashley, cause they fought all the time and were hardasses 2: Garrus & Thane, they were like bodyguards, sometimes switched in the DLC merc guy 3: Garrus & Javik, just renegading and doing badass stuff all over
ME1: Kaidan and Liara: Total lockdown of the battlefield. ME2: Garrus and Miranda: They could damage everything.

ME1 - garrus and tali, though i did use liara and wrex often enough to mention ME2 - garrus and tali, i would use kasumi grunt, and thane a lot though until i recruited tali ME3 - garrus and tali, i would use liara or EDI frequently until i got tali --- religion is flawed because man is flawed. no gods, no kings... only man.
