I soon have to make a decision to let Samara kill herself or not. I am trying to get the highest renegade score possible, but also trying to get as many war-assets to get the best of all the bad endings.

Are the renegade points gained by letting samara kill herself (and kill her daughter) "more" than what I would gain as having Samara as a war asset, as much as they can be compared?

How do you expect us to compare Renegade reputation points versus War Assets? That's comparing apples to oranges. – Mufasa Mar 18 '12 at 18:05
@Mufasa for the purposes of achieving the ending I want, one choice is probably better than the other. – What's up Doc Mar 18 '12 at 18:07

I believe letting her die will reward you more; However this is purley from memory and may not be entirely accurate.

There is no benefit from having Renegade points - as long as your reputation bar is full, you can handle any charm / intimidate situation as you see fit.

Alternatively, if you happen to like the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer, you can slowly farm that for as many war assets as you need (75 each time you promote), which makes the choice of war assets ultimately irrelevant also.

So it isn't like in the previous game where you had to make renegade decisions to get renegade dialogue choices? – What's up Doc Mar 18 '12 at 18:29
@What'supDoc Correct. See this question for more info. – Raven Dreamer Mar 18 '12 at 19:59
