I still remember a cut scene from mass effect (the one where the big ant is stuck in a container that can be blown) and see the guys run in from various directions, since i Kept dying in that room.
I'm still on my first playthrough and most cutscenes are definitely unskippable. Worse still, I can't even pause the game in the middle of the cutscenes (bye-bye short activities like toilet breaks, quick exercises, chit chats with someone outside my room, etc). Many of these are also just not downright necessary (Sheppard crash-landing, shooting at enemies and, well, still alive and ready to start the mission). Repeated so may times, I now watch them with my eyes rolled up.
