I was wary of Vega in the beginning, as Bioware hasn't exactly had the best track record when it comes to making their "default human party members" (Kaiden, Carth, Jacob, etc) compelling. But I actually grew to really enjoy the character - we haven't really had an Alliance foot soldier type since Ashley, and he doesn't have the whininess or xenophobia that made some people dislike her. I thought he was a refreshing change of pace from the super commandoes and mad scientists of the rest of the cast (not that I didn't love them too), and Freddie Prinze Jr. does a great job imbuing him with a sense of humor. Hell, some of the funniest dialogue scenes in ME3 involve Vega - the aforementioned results of ordering him to perform tech-oriented tasks, his conversation with Javik in the Normandy's kitchen, and his "man off" with Garrus in the lounge room, among others.
