I really liked James. Some of the best comic moments came from him.
I didnt really use him first playthrough... been playing again recently and there are some great bits. There's a bit where if you nominate him to do one of the "techy" bits (where you hold off enemies while one character fixes something) ... every other character is just like "on it" and starts fixing it... but if you choose James he's like "Err... I'm... not really very good at this stuff..." then just starts kicking it . He also sounds gutted if you tell him to **** off when he asks if he can call you "Loco"... ahaha... like "Oh... OK Commander... "
I switched my squad up most of the time. Apart from in the first game where they had the Achievements for completing most of the game with particular squadmates! I just tried to take who I thought would be useful or have interesting/relevant dialog for a particular mission, like taking Tali on missions that involved the Geth etc...
Always Garrus. Then in ME1 I had Wrex for the banter, in ME2 I had Miranda for the squad bonus (and coz I banged her) and Javik in ME3 for his unique insight. Didn't really care for the others apart from maybe Thane and EDI occasionally.
