A number of Mass Effect 3 fans are furious that they have been asked to recreate their Commander Shepard from scratch, due to a problem with importing data. If you created your Shepard in the very first game and didn't alter anything in the second, Mass Effect 3cannot recognize it.
Producer Michael Gamble acknowledged the situation on Twitter, but so far there has been no official statement on the matter, or a given reason for the problem. A number of temporary fixes have been unearthed by fans, for those desperate to get their faces back.
Mass Effect fans can put a crazy amount of personal investment into their characters, so while this situation might not be a life-and-death matter to some, it's definitely sent a number of users off the deep end. When you factor in how pissed off users already are at the game, for a variety of justified and hysterical reasons, something like this certainly doesn't help.
Is this a big deal to you? Did you have any problems importing your preferred face, and if so, did you just make a new one and move on, or has this ruined your experience entirely?
