The fact you could wait for 30 minutes without responding back gave Mass Effect it's charm. On youtube you have several popular spoofs. Alpha just failed to live up for me.
No no no. The thing that gave Mass Effect its charm were these conversations:
NPC: Hello, Shepard, how can I help you?
Shepard: I'd like to ask you a few questions.
Shepard: I should go.
NPC: C'ya later.
The game that got its charm from waiting long periods before replying was KOTOR because your character would make these amusingly serious facial expressions while you delayed. (Though I dunno, maybe Shepard does that, too)
