It’s not a game.  It’s Jennifer Hale.  The erstwhile Commander Shepard, Bastila Shan, Leah ad infinitum (or so it seems) – there really is no other actor that matches her range and body of work.  There have been so many notable roles that Hale has voiced that you could get as many responses as people you ask for who their favorite character of hers is.  For me, however, it was her voice acting in Mass Effect as Commander Shepard that made, for me at least, “FemShep” canon. Though I can’t deny that the model for the default male version of Shepard (Mark Vanderloo) is… um… easy on the eyes.

Though I do have to add an honorable mention, the iconic voice work of Mark Hamill, whose take on the Joker is pantheon-level stuff.
