Actually, yes, "because there would be no story otherwise" is always a perfectly good reason to ignore plot points.
"We decided to throw away the planned story, and make a third game anyways, and decided that we're too lazy to come up with something that didn't contradict. Enjoy!"
The planned story was even more retarded than the one we got. It basically boiled down to "We're trying to come up to a solution to dark energy killing the universe... so we make all the civilizations in the Milky Way use mass effect tech, which makes the problem worse."

I would totally buy a remake of ME1 with ME3's game engine and RPG systems, because the game mechanics were total shit. The fact that they had to scrap the entire thing and rebuild from scratch for ME2 is all the evidence one needs for that.
Or evidence that EA and/or Bioware decided to scrap everything (not just Karpyshyn's story) and make a shooter instead of an RPG in an attempt to expand their sales.
Wanna know why Bioware axed all the ME1 systems? Here's the story from one of the devs:
A business man and engineer discuss how to launch a communications satellite in the 1960s:
Biz Dev Guy: Your communications satellite has to be the size, shape, and weight of a hydrogen bomb.
