Phase 1: "I have no idea what I'm doing or where I'm supposed to go next."
Phase 2: Need to go into area swarming with enemies; only have 2 pistol rounds. Spend hours trying to get weapons and ammo.
Phase 3: Finally move on, get slaughtered. Trade in at Gamestop.
If you're talking about Mass Effect, I'm not sure about the first one but the second has been painfully easy so far (35 hours in). And even still, with a lot of those games (Fallout 3 included) you can change the difficulty at any point in the game to easy and back to normal at no consiquence on the story, you may just miss getting a trophy or something.
