When i'm given the opportunity to choose a dialog, they all appear in red but when i choose the "nicer" of the 2 i get paragon points awarded. I only see red options, not blue or grey.

What could be the cause of this?

do you have any paragon points? – l I Mar 22 '12 at 23:42

The UI in Mass Effect 3 has a silly flaw -- the color of selected dialog is always red. You're not using renegade options, you're just using normal conversation.

Handy Rule of Thumb: enter image description here

Not every conversation has Charm / Intimidate options - these will only show up if they're available.

Also, sometimes the 'Reputation Neutral Response' is really just 'Less Renegade' or 'Less Paragon'. – LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 23 '12 at 0:24
