I personally agree with the speculation and would add that Beattie was instrumental to Mordin, moreso than the VAs for most the other (former) squadmates, so it's just a weird decision to have someone else VA him and spend money and effort on Chobot instead.
Oh, really?
Dude. Fuck that even more. That means they ARE using the resources to do something really fucking stupid instead of the obvious smart thing.

I had Mordin in my party for more than half of at least two of my three ME2 playthroughs.
He's awesome. I mean, not so much in combat, but he's just awesome to listen to and have around.

Yeah I have absolutely no fucking clue why they wouldn't just pay Beattie to return, particularly when Beattie's been on the fucking record as wanting to VA Mordin again in ME3, he just never got a call.
(I mean, I'd understand it if Beattie didn't want to reprise the role.)

I mean I talked to him every time I came back to the ship but I never found him that great in the field. Is that just my play style?
He definitely wasn't one of the characters I went to all the time for my harder runs. But on easier settings where I was just running through as a Vanguard murdering all that dared oppose me, yeah. I brought him along a lot because it rarely seemed to matter. Dude performed about as well as anyone else while being about three fucking times as awesome all the same.

Really in terms of combat they were all pretty interchangeable as far as I ever noticed.

He's one of the three best choices for the final confrontation, as he, Thane, and Tali can 'randomly' die if you leave them to hold the line, so the best thing to do is send Mordin, Thane, or Tali off with the survivors, and take the other two with you.

Not really necessary to take both, but you should take at least one.

That said, I usually sent Mordin back because he's pretty terrible in a fight. Which he should be as he is grandfather age. And ages like a cat. I figured he and Thane would be dead by ME3 back when playing ME2, really.

Reapers come in a range of Sizes, from the One that the Maw takes down, smallest, to Sovereign, Largest.

That Thresher Maw isn't 'A Thresher Maw'. It is a grandaddy, fuck-off, big-as-that-Reaper Thresher Maw Legend that I forget the name of because I can't find the magazine I read it in.

Also, come on Karesh. You know the lore well enough to rattle off Thresher Maw info, but you forgot that Kinetic Barriers do shit-all to slow-moving attacks? Something your size attacking you in a, for the mass, slow manner is going to trip fuck-all of a kinetic shield. otherwise slugging or rifle-butting a guy in combat wouldn't do anything at all.

Come on.

Come. On.

Well, except for Garrus being somehow even more fragile than Mordin.
...I still brought Garrus around for much of my easier playthroughs because he's awesome, but I had to ditch him entirely in Insanity.
...Coincidentally I do think I had Mordin in my party for at least a few missions / sidequests on Insanity, he did fine.

EDIT: I'm pretty sure Thane and Tali can't randomly die if you have your overall loyalty of your ME2 squadmates above a certain threshold level.
I think Mordin's the only one who's actually at risk even if everyone's Loyal if he isn't either in your party or sent back as escort.

Are you trying to suggest a creature of that size is moving slowly as it streams across the landscape at the speed of a goddamn bullet train?
What the fuck ever for the mass. Fast is fast. That maw is moving fast enough to trigger a kinetic barrier reaction.

...That has to be about the most ludicrous retcon / additional info dump in order to justify a Thresher Maw taking a Reaper on.
Next there will be a granddaddy of all Geth Colossi and it will be nearly as large as a Reaper and capable of taking it on
