As we can see this story has all the guidelines for basic myth. As I have mentioned before you have your hero, Commander Shepard, your villains, the Reapers and the Collectors, and your mystic guides, Captain Anderson and The Illusive Man. It also includes a journey, as Shepard is constructing his team to travel to the Collector's base. The Mission was to destroy the Collector threat.
