Man I gotta catch up here. Ok so I'm trying to quote from multiple pages, I don't think that works so I've copied and pasted, forgive me I'm doing this hard coded:
First, the free US Army game you're thinking of was called America's Army and was developed around the Unreal engine. That's probably why you feel the similarity. AA actually wasn't bad, esp for being a free recruiting tool, although I spent most of the time in that game waiting to respawn watching people play the game lol.

Tell me about it, I just switched to Battlefield and started hopping everywhere trying to sprint
Oh tell me about it. I'm a Gears veteran, I've started since Gears 1, and I tried to play Horde mode the other day and was dying on the early waves due to not knowing what button did what (or relearning/telling my brain to unlearn what I previously thought). Haha I felt like such a noob.

Agreed, this was me as well and felt very limited with this fight. (I mean one could say you're fighting that enemy but you know that's a poor excuse in my book.) I was pissed afterwards to find out (via an Inside Xbox video) that it's best to just fire the thing without moving in the end. Wow really because I tried to roll, dodge, run whatever every time constantly dying (where I even contemplated putting down the game for a while to cool off)!?

Wait, I didn't know you could romance Tali - I never seemed to get any options that got close to that. She just got drunk in the lounge for the whole last part of the game .
It's kind of hard not to resist when, you know you can see Liara (one could argue though that the mystery is the allure of Tali), as they improved on her character model and art style after the LotSB, and she's got some of the best writing in the game being such a powerful/influential character. I had Tali as my LI in ME2 but then I was really touched by the transformation and character growth of Jack so I had her as my LI in ME2, then ME3. Yeah I had Tali but then went to Jack and that was the save file that was transferred I guess.

My Sheploo romanced Liara in ME1 and Tali in ME2, though reconciled things with Liara during LoTSB and working on continuing the romance in ME3. My femShep romanced Liara in ME1, had no LI in ME2 and rekindled things with Liara in LoTSB, with the relationship continuing into ME3 (once I get to that point).
There's lots more romance options in ME3, though that's spoiler territory.
See that was the thing that kind of irked me was that the limitation of romance options is non-existant in ME3. What I mean is you can be in a relationship, or just f, with anyone and then a potential LI in ME3 will say oh well it looks like you're with so and so but you can say nah baby you're the only one you know it (said in Bender's Pimp voice). I mentioned this on MSUHitman's Checkmate Arcade ME3 Spoilercast, as it kind of dilutes who you pick as the LI throughout the series. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Still have plenty of imports to pick other decisions, different love interests and whatnot but I'm waiting for the summer extended ending "closure & clarity" dlc to see if my time with the series would be fulfilled.
