@zintarr: The Witcher 3 had twice the budget and two-thirds the production cost, being located in Poland. It's hardly a fair comparison. The problem with ME: A is a budget far too low for what they tried to accomplish, and a team for whom this is their first AAA title (this isn't Bioware Edmonton's work, but Bioware Montreal's, a very different and much less experienced group of people). The low budget, and inexperienced team can all be attributed to EA. EA simply doesn't understand games development, unfortunately.
