The 10 Greatest Mass Effect Romances

Captain Shepard was the Lothario(a) of the entire Galaxy. If you were on his/her ship, you were fair game. However, which relationship was most likely to stand the test of time?

Posted on

Dishonorable Mention - Kaidan Alenko


Cons - Kaidan is boring, a killjoy and basically takes all the fun out of romance.

Pros - Popular consensus appears to agree that Kaidan has a nice ass.

Final result - I'm sorry Kaidan, but I will let you die every single time.

10. Ashley Williams


Cons- Kinda sorta a racist, a bit clingy and prone to unpleasant outbursts.

Pros - Been there since the beginning, loyal and accepts you for who you are.

Final result - That girl you hooked up with on a school trip on the back of the bus only to learn she had a huge problem with you living in "the city."

9. Samara


Pros- Tuned into her feelings, has a lot of experience and understands that Shepard has to be Shepard.

Cons- Who?

Final result - Samara


8. Jacob Taylor


Pros - Stalwart, a pillar for Shepard to rely upon and a decently good guy.

Cons - CHEATER!!!!!!

Final Result- Jacob is your permanent backup and locked safely within the "friend" box though he wants something more.

7. Miranda Lawson


Pros - That spacesuit. That spacesuit. And....that spacesuit.

Cons - Definitely not a very nice person.

Final result - Miranda is that mean girl you secretly had a crush on even though she constantly belittled you.

6. Kelly Chambers


Pros - Super adorable, helpful and is probably very nice to kittens.

Cons- A bit scarred over that whole "abducted by aliens" thing and she is nice to kittens.

Final Result- Kelly is your ex that you sometimes stalk on Facebook at 3AM.

5. Jack


Pros- Sweet tattoos, has a bit of an edge AND is into crazy make outs.

Cons- The whole "crazy" bit.

Final Result- Jack is the girl that you go backpacking in Thailand with and have an awesome time and then never think to call once you get home.


4. Liara T'Soni


Pros- Liara is opens up Shepard's mind to alien/human relationships, can make a fun light show happen when she is smooching you and is generally a nice lady.

Cons- Not to slutshame anyone but Liara has been around the block (or universe). It also doesn't help that she turns to a life of pseudo-crime the first time you let her out of your sight.

Final Result - Liara is that girl you made out with at the bar once after to many Mai Tais.

3. Thane Krios


Pros- VERY Sensitive, complex back story portray him as the last of a dying race and appears to be a good kisser.

Cons- Sickly.

Final Result- Thane is the boy you had a crush on at summer camp who died in a tragic swimming accident a day before you could confess your love to him.

1. Garrus Vakarian


Pros- Everything you could want in a soulmate with the bonus that he is really handy in an intergalactic war.

Cons- Stop playing so hard to get!

Final Result- Space Alien Cary Grant FTW!
