After finishing the story of Mass Effect 2, we get the choice to continue to complete the different/unfinished missions throughout the game or to import our character and play through a new game at our current saved level and power stats. I have noticed that I do not level up at all during my new playthrough. I gain Paragon/Renegade points to help me with conversations but not at any stage have I leveled up. My powers and all characters no longer level up and gain power points. I only ask because I was able to play playthrough after playthrough in Mass Effect 1 and continued to level up; this is not happening in Mass Effect 2. If you know the answer, is that the way it is when you import your ME2 character after a playthrough or is my game/system messed up?
Thank you to anyone who can help me with this. I have searched elsewhere but have found no answers at all.
