    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?

    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.

    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.
