The map/quest tracking system is a bag of mashed up assholes.
If you need to meet somebody for a part of a mission, sometimes the quest marker doesn't even show up unless you're in the same room with them. You won't find it on the map even if you mark it in the quest screen. Every now and again they'll give you an indicator to play hot + cold to find certain things but that's it. Right now I can't even finish Kadara w/o finding Reyes but I found Reyes and they don't tell me what to do next.
Some missions require waiting on an email from an email terminal on your ship. can you get that via the AI computer embedded in your brain? Of course not. You gotta go on your ship so that means a 20 second animation. And that email? it says "come meet me on the planet you just left to read this email" Go fuck yourself quest/mission.
