Bad - Side missions (No point in playing them), grenades and UI. Also, I rarely used health packs and never bought anything until I upgraded my armor at the end, because I had so many credits I didn't know what to do with.
Side missions are bad but I think a few them make a difference in the long term. IE impact ME2 possibly ME3.
