The rest of this post is behind a cut for potential Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 spoilers. Mass Effect 2: the opening titles begin, and we are staring, frightfully close-up, at a multicolored sun. A woman who we soon learn to be Miranda is discussing Shepard... with The Illusive Man. He is the beginning and the end of this game, the would-be puppet-master pulling all the strings.
