I have barely just started Mass Effect 2, its Skyrim's fault. Everytime I make a note of playing ME2 I just end up going back to Skyrim. Skyrim was giving me trouble last week with constant freezing so I just went to Mass Effect 2 but I was never happy with my Femshep, I gave up on the 5th try, because I was really tired of the whole comic before you start the game.
Anyway, I downloaded the demo and i am glad they added some more options to make your shepard, although i still think is rather restrictive, for the women, I have never created a male shepard. In my head, Shepard is a chick, like in the vein of Ripley from Aliens, a hard ass chick.
