Ha, too true.
I recently (last weekend) had to rebuild my Shepard because she was lost with my old, dead, PC =(
I did something I didn't do my first playthrough though: I romanced Liara.
Now I don't know what to do in 2, which I started playing this week. Clock is tickin down, I need this Shepard reconstructed D:
Oops, should probably remove this.
