Let's just wait for them to come up with a new IP, because at least we know that will be awesome.
That's a bit harsh, isn't it?
Dragon Age 2's development team was being whipped into a two-year cycle by EA; had BioWare been an independent developer they could have made it the sequel it should have been.
KOTOR 2 was handed over to Obsidian for major development decisions, so while BioWare played their part it wasn't a large one.
As for Mass Effect 2, the so-called 'fans' who complained are in a minority; it scooped up multiple awards including best game of the year, and was recognised by critics and players alike as a nigh-on perfect experience.
Speaking of fans in general, it seems to me the best thing they do is complain about EVERYTHING, from comic book fans to video game and cult TV series fans, it's the same story every time and nothing is ever good enough to satisfy all of them. The sooner people stop listening to fans the happier they'll be for it.
While BioWare can't seem to make a perfect sequel, this is hardly unique to them alone. Who has made the perfect sequel (apart from Godfather Part II, obviously)?
Animator, writer, and NPC molester.
