I foresee the destruction of the MEU, not the saving of it. Jan 22, 2021 15:47:46 GMT Tonymac and Sondergaard like this

That's Star Trek's situation, whose fanbase age average is over 40 years old. We are an aging fanbase, which is not gaining any new blood. At least, what new blood we are getting, is not equivalent to the old blood lost, due to the misuse of the IP (see JarJarTrek and KurtzmanTrek).
They could, if they wanted to and that would attract new fans, as well. At least it would drive up curiosity. Do you think people who haven't played the trilogy will know who this Liara person in the new game is? Or people who didn't touch Andromeda, but played the remaster, will know who this Ryder bozo is? Or people who played Andromeda and didn't like it, will give Ryder another go just because? Bioware is going along, like nothing is wrong, when everything is fucking wrong. I don't understand how you can be so blind and detached from the fanbase's pulse. What remaining fanbase you still have, anyway.
Not true. Star Wars had far more good content than ME. The EU had some great stories, like Heir to the Empire, Dark Forces, Jedi Knight, Dark Empire and even the prequels, though flawed in execution, weren't that bad and "Revenge of the Sith" is considered one of the "good" Star Wars movies. RotS, in general, is highly ranked in fan appreciation, oftentimes coming above RotJ. There has been side content for SW to keep it alive and good content at that. The same can't be said of ME whose side content are some terrible comic books, with horrible art and even worse script/dialogues, while the books are ... there's two mediocre ones, including the one that introduced everyone's favourite tryhard space ninja, Kai Leng, everything else was garbage with one excuse to include N.K. Jemisin's Quarian humiliation/exhibitionism fetish. Star Wars has had far better content to carry it, than Mass Effect. Halo has had a more Star Wars like course, with mostly mediocre releases after 3, with a few good ones here and there, till it came to its own TLJ moment with, which one was it, Guardians? ME cut through the chase by having its TLJ moment with ME3 and Andromeda basically being tRoS. And I don't see ME5 being the "Mandalorian" moment of ME. Well, I guess the teaser was that, which foolled everyone into thinking Shep and co. would be back, but that's going to collapse the moment the truth comes out. That's going to be fun to watch.
