I had a hard time choosing between Garrus and Thane. Garrus had been my long time crush, but Thane. . . .his story is so compelling and when he called me Siha and then teasingly said he would tell me later, I fell for him.
I loved the teary scenes. When characters cried, that was something that was lacking in Mass Effect 1, was the more emotional scenes of people dealing with loss and grief. Though Ashley/Kaiden's death was sad, it was glossed over.
