The ending is most certainly NOT the only problem with Mass Effect 3. The game is full of ridicolous fetch quests without any real structure, it is extremely linear, the writing is really subpar (even for Bioware), a lot of the dialogue is on rails without any player input and there are almost no occurences of any major choices or consequences.
The abysmal ending (seriously, what were they thinking?!) is just the tip of the iceberg. The rest of the game is a somewhat mediocre third-person shooter, but compared to the other games it's absolutely awful. Also, the developers flat out lied when they stated that "each and every decision you make will have a profound effect on the ending of the series". That is simply not true. So in the end, what they gave us was a rushed, simplified shooter which contained nothing of what they promised.

Are they dead? Yes. Unlike you they have but one life...and they wasted it for your sake!
