"One of the surprising pieces of feedback was for some players, it's not that they don't like the story. They love story. In fact, the story is so important to them that they feel the story choices are intimidating."
Who are these focus group gibbering chimps (as I likely insult some of our readership) who can't deal with videogame consequences? This "action mode" sounds like it turns Mass Effect into Gears of War. As much as I do enjoy that latter action franchise, that's not at all what I look forward to in a BioWare game.
I'm likely completely overreacting, since this mode is entirely optional. I just feel that whatever resources are being devoted to implementing this "feature" would be better served making the actual game better in some MEANINGFUL way.
