See, the military assets we'd collected didn't even bother to show up, and the extended cut only went a small way towards easing this nagging annoyance as we basically just fought a few minor skirmishes instead of an actual war.
So here's what to do. First off, allow us to spend more time on Earth before the Reapers attack. Add some new Earth scenes/areas into Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 and enlarge the start of Mass Effect 3, giving us a stake in protecting the planet, and a sense of belonging to it. The following battle will feel more impactful as a result. Then, please, beef up the battle itself, with Volus bombing squads and Elcor Tanks bringing the rain as we desperately push the offensive. Yes, it would take a lot of work, but it would be fantastic."
