And you don't have to take my word for it, Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 both have proper endings, with lots of small variations,
Really I wouldn't consider Mass Effect 2 letting you kill off pretty much everyone a small variation.
Not to mention Mass effect letting you kill the council and have humanity take control of the galaxy is kind of a major thing.
And I don't get how allowing a player greater influence on the narrative of the game means there is no narrative. Last I checked the big thing about Mass Effect was letting your choices affect the story, at least until Mass Effect 3 came along and forced you into extremely limited choices.
