Yeah, that's what I meant. You travel to a new system/cluster, see this new star, you scan the planets for more informations. And they did an excellent job with all those scientific informations you can find in the text. Then, if it's a planet I can land on, I'm very amazed. If it's hazardous, you have to waer special suits for etc. Then you see the beautiful sky, the panorama etc. That definately kicked ass, atleast for people like me who are interested in astrophysics etc. So no, you're not alone. There were also some creatures on those planets, like the apes mentionend in a sidequest, guiraffes, pollen flying through the air etc. If they manage to increase those features (which I hope, the xbox and PC version is getting released on 2 dvds, which tells me there is more content than on Mass Effect 1) this will be awesome.
