    very good fix, in my opinion, This is more along the lines of what I was actually expecting. This and an actual final mission of some sort, where your intergalactic fleet did something or some kind of decisions to make regarding your crew. The lack of the latter wouldn't have been so bad though with the inclusion of the former.

    1hundred stars to this

    I can agree with this

    this make sense,

    Inet is full of nonsense "indoctrination theory"
    Too much people are persuaded to it and using 2sided blade arguments, ignoring facts, on first look you can see that they are justifying themselves that "destroy" is right choice and other are you loose and be full indoc.

    Our race is still too young

    I completly agree with your deduction. Free will unity is the option I've missed from the whole picture, yet I couldn't explain the plot on the level you did.

    Lack of this option (method, more likely) in the ending is the main inconvenience for me, because that was the way I always walked on in the whole story. There was one other point in the game, when this method was not present: at the choice you erase/rewrite the heretic geth. Though with Legion's explanation about the rewrite way is acceptable for the greater good, it's still a renegade method. There should be a way to communicate with the heretic geth, for example using Legion as an interpreter, and persuade them with reasons to bridge over the schism without forcing. Though, in fact, the lack of this option is logical because of the presence of the Reaper code (it can be seen as "indoctrination for synthetics").

    (Sorry, if my bad english rendered my explanation to something uncomprehendable. I hope you can understand what I've tried to explain.)

  4. Why can’t you just beat the reapers?

    It’s shown that a thresher maw can take down a reaper, it’s shown that the quatrain fleet can take down a reaper. Screw the crucible. Screw the citadel. Why can’t you just beat the reapers the old fashioned way? Why isn’t there an option to be ready. If you come back from Mass Effect 2 with proof that the reapers are incoming, why the hell cant you import that save and have people actually believe Shepard about the reapers. The reapers would come, and it’d be your job to fight them. And fight them you do with every available asset, forging bonds, gaining allies and pushing the limits of the galaxy along the way? Why do you have to depend on the crucible or those three endings at all? End the cycle by crushing the reapers as a unified galaxy, jeez.
