In a dream, I don't really have a clue what's going on, and they all seem to end the same way with

the boy bursting into flames

Is there anything else that can happen, or any way I can influence what goes on in a dream?

Nope. You can't even run away, Shepard will turn around and run back.

You will eventually have to do what you're meant to do, so you might as well get it over with straight away.

So it's effectively a cut-scene? – fredley Mar 22 '12 at 11:52
@fredley Pretty much. They just try to make it interesting by having you do all the manual labor, which I might point out makes it less interesting in my eyes. – Mr Smooth Mar 22 '12 at 11:53
It feels a lot like filler to me, which is annoying. – fredley Mar 22 '12 at 11:55
in my opinion the dreams really didnt add all that much to the game. just 10 minutes of trying to catch up with a boy while you are walking extremely slow. – Serge Bekenkamp Mar 22 '12 at 12:06
@MrSmooth I know what you are talking about but even then i don't find that the dreams have much significance. – Serge Bekenkamp Mar 22 '12 at 12:29

No, you cannot change anything. These dreams are just some kind of interractive cinematics.

If you go outside the perimeter, your Shepard will turn back.
