I think the backing of the Star Wars license would be much more beneficial to the devs than Mass Effect. Both great universes but Star Wars is kind of a big deal.

Star Wars being the safe choice is right, and for good reason. Knowing how different things might be post ME3's release can't be said for now, but I do agree that the ME universe is all but tailor made for a great MMO.
