Re: Mass Effect 3
The initial mistake was EA's in giving them such a limited development window. They treated ME3 like it was another generic sci-fi action game when it was an expansive RPG just like its predecessors. Games with that much content to them take a lot more time than typical shooter games do.
And Bioware knows it, and still committed to being able to hit the date. That's their failure.
