The face part I can kinda see. My guess is that ME2's face program was coded differently than ME1's, so ME2's importer included a translator for the face codes. They didn't realize that ME2 didn't actually save the face code if it was directly imported, and since people were expecting import from ME2 to ME3, they probably didn't think much of it. Of course, there is a thing called testing which they obviously should've done a better job with.
Honestly I just went to www.masseffect2faces.com/
and created a new one. They had a better Jean-Luc Picard than I did anyway.
A possible workaround is to start up ME2, import the character from ME1, and write down the face code.
Movement wise - I'm really happy with the faster sprint. Playing through ME1, then ME2 has made me really appreciate this. What really bugs me is the cover system. Last night, just moving from two interior pieces of cover at right angles was almost too fluid. I'll probably get used to it after a while.
For those who preordered from Amazon - I really don't like the Argus Assault Rifle. The recoil is huge, especially if you are trying to aim with LT. It's great for getting headshots at medium to short range, but it's complete garbage at long range.
Multiplayer - I saved up all my credits to get a Spectre pack right away. What did I get? 5 medigels, 1 equipment, 1 shotgun attachment (melee booster), a handgun (phalanx I think), and the Claymore. What a freaking waste! I'd suggest focusing on veteran packs until you get two mods for the weapon type you use most. Then go for Spectre to try for the characters you want.
BTW, had an absolute blast playing Multiplayer last night. I'm going to try and work on lines I can say in-game as a different species. For example:
"Sadly, I am down."
"With excitement, I am uploading the data."
"Pointedly, get over here, you stupid n00b."
"This one needs to be revived."
"The Enkindlers demand your death."
"This one wishes you would stop sucking."
"This hurts you."
"My attacks will tear you apart."
