Elcor Extraction is the worst Mass Effect mission (except Priority: Earth)

The scan/probe and Reaper Pac Man side quests were already disappointing and tedious enough. This side quest reduces the evacuation of an entire planet to an inane fetch quest.

I remember finding out about this side quest by talking to the elcor ambassador on my first playthrough, being stoked, and then finding out that I'd already completed it.

Could not agree more.

On top of not seeing Elcor in action, we never saw the Drell/Hanar homeworld OR the Volus. Sooo many missed opportunities.

Right, because gameplay on a planet with insane gravity would be sooooo fun.

Tell me Chakas, if this was your choice, after all we have seen and survived... would you fire the rings?

We also never got to see palavan... We saw a glimpse of Sur'kesh and Thessia, but honestly, those were total cop-outs

Yes, this is a signature.
