Maxed out Renegade, about 60% Paragon. Pulled a gun on people a lot, used a lot of intimidate and aggressive conversation choices, mix of renegade and paragon solutions to quests. Mostly went with what felt "right" for the particular quest. Not racist.

Installed Bring Down the Sky, executed terrorist leader, let the hostages die.

Got Wrex's family armor.
Saved the Rachni Queen.
Pulled a gun on Conrad.
Completed Asari Diplomacy.
Allowed experiments on Nirali Bhatia's body.
Completed food and water Zhu's Hope quests, killed all the colonists.

This was a rapid playthrough with a specific focus on things that are known (believed) to be checked by ME2 when you import the character. I've got everything exactly as I want it, though I'm certainly not averse to powergaming... Most of the major choices were Paragon, but I'd intimidated a few people that I think deserved it.

I think I did all the sidequests but not the collectables (Matriarch writings, Turian isignias and so on). I installed BdtS, captured the terrorist and handed him over to the Alliance. I drove his henchman off the planet via a renegade option.

Now with some extra info:
Rich achievement: check
Wrex's family armor: done
Dr. Sidonis: killed him with Garrus
Garrus: I think he is a renegade now but I am not sure what you mean by that (under the ME1 decisions in ME2 tab) - I made him reapply for Spectre training and choes renegade options (the bottom ones) most of the time when talking to him
Rachni queen: alive
Conrad Verner: paragon
UNC: Asari Diplomacy: done
UNC: Geth Incursions: done
Shiala (cloned asari): alive
colonists on Feros: alive (Ethan Jeong, that ExoGeni dude, killed) due to Thorian gas
Geth data: given to Tali
Cerberus data: kept, not given to the Shadow Broker
Noveria: Anoleis arrested
Helena Blake is alive but I told her to drop the gang
Fist got shot by Shepard
Bhatias body is available for Alliance research
Ctp. Kirrahe survived Virmire
Rana Thanoptis was spared ("You enjoyed that, Commander...")
Sent Anderson into Udinas office
Saren committed suicide
Keeper: scanned, did both quests
Asari consort: nailed it! Also got the vision on Eletania
Emily Wong: Fists OSD and bug in Citadel Traffic Control
Major Kyle: surrendered
Terra Firma: not supported
Keeler (addict negotiator): got him into a therapy
hostage quest (with the biotic chairman): paragon solution with the chairman alive

I think that's it so far. If you have any questions you can write me a mail.

Save is in the entrance to the Citadel Tower at the end. Fight through a few geth and you get to Saren; he was convinced on Virmire, and Shepard has full Charm and almost full Intimidate, so all three options are open (charm or intimidate him to shoot himself, or fight him).

Paragon full, renegade a little under half (6 bars). Tried to do the right thing (Paragon) and be fair in general, but used a lot of Intimidate and killed people if I thought they deserved it. Not racist at all.

Completionist; finished all assignments, including collection ones; went everywhere on the Citadel after each mission, so I think I got pretty much everything.
Shepard is Rich.
Got all the licenses.

Bring Down the Sky NOT installed.
Pinnacle Station installed, got first place in all scenarios and beat Ahern's special one. Talked to the convoy and got a few things from the Wallace.

Encouraged Garrus to do things his own way. Found Saleon and told Garrus to kill him.
Gave Tali the geth data for her pilgrimage.
Found Wrex's armor.

Saved the Rachni Queen.
Was fairly nice to Conrad most of the time, but shoved a gun in his face at the end (no good fights).
Completed Asari Diplomacy sidequest (talked to Nassana before going to the planet), intimidated for the Armali Council stuff.
Spared Shiala and saved all 16 colonists, and did all three side quests to help, so Zhu's Hope lives on, but shot the ExoGeni guy.
Helped Parasini, charmed Lorik into testifying.
Did Helena Blake's quest, then intimidated her into disbanding.
Fist was killed by Wrex, and Shepard approved; the guy deserved to die.
Allowed experiments on Nirali Bhatia's body, but was kind to her husband.

Saved Kirrahe and company. [Virmire]
Spared Rana Thanoptis ("you enjoyed that, Shepard"). [Virmire]
Talked to Han Olar. [Noveria]

Shot Finch. [Old Friends]
Helped the consort but did not have sex with her, got the trinket and used it to get the vision-ish thing.
Helped Dr. Michel with her blackmailer (intimidated him).
Gave Emily Wong the OSD, convinced her not to spy on the traffic controllers and interview one instead.
Scanned all the keepers, and convinced Jahleed and Chorban to continue working together.
Intimidated the Presidium Prophet into leaving.
Intimidated Major Kyle, but gave him his hour and everyone lived.
Gave interview [Fourth Estate], used mostly Charm IIRC, maybe some Intimidate as well once she started getting accusatory; stayed positive for the most part, though (gave Turians their due credit for the Normandy, for example).
Helped Schnells get his data.
Refused to support Terra Firma.

Charmed Toombs into sparing the scientist, both testify.
Finished the Cerberus quest chain. Gave the data from Hades' Dogs the the Shadow Broker (a deal is a deal, plus there's no point in getting on the Broker's bad side).
Convinced the biotics to release Burns, and Burns to do his job.
Killed everyone in UNC: ExoGeni Facility ("I should kill you right now!").
Got Gavin Hossle's data for him on Feros.

Besieged Base (Paragon assignment) completed with no casualties (all scientists saved).

I'm calling this a "Mixed" save because I took a fairly even split in total decisions between the two options. Main story decisions were almost all Paragon, but if an Intimidate option was given, I took it. This character has full Renegade and over 50% Paragon.

This was not a 100% run. I did every quest and interaction that carries over to Mass Effect 2 or to Mass Effect 3, and a few extra just for leveling purposes (i.e. the Citadel quests - those are all done). That means I:

- Got "Rich"
- Purchased the Elkoss Combine license (and all others)
- Gave Wrex his family armor
- Gave Tali the geth data
- Encouraged Garrus to be Renegade
- Intimidated Dr. Michel's blackmailer
- Helped Shai'ira and used her trinket
- Ended the interview with Khalisah al-Jilani
- Completed Scan the Keepers
- Let Wrex kill Fist
- Returned Nirali Bhatia's body to her husband by Intimidate
- Killed Finch
- Completed Hostile Takeover and Intimidated Helena Blake into disbanding
- Helped Jenna
- Sorted out Michael and Rebekah's argument by Intimidate
- Killed Nassana Dantius' sister and revealed that I knew who she was
- Gave the Cerberus files to the Shadow Broker
- Saved Chairman Burns by Intimidate
- Killed the scientist for Cpl. Toombs
- Completed UNC: Asari Writings
- Destroyed the Rogue VI on Luna
- Retrieved Gavin Hossle's data

On Feros: I intimidated Ethan Jeong, spared every colonist, and spared Shiala.

On Noveria: I Intimidated Lorik Qui'in to testify, blackmailed Anoleis, gave the evidence to Gianna Parasini, met Han Olar, and released the Rachni Queen.

On Virmire: I Intimidated Wrex, destroyed the Geth Flyers, got Kirrahe out safely, killed Rana Thanoptis, and rescued Ashley.

On X57: I did not find the three engineers. I went after Balak, and left him to die.

In the Endgame: I saved the Council, but did not recommend either Anderson or Udina for the position.

The attached save is directly after escaping from the Citadel, but before Ilos.

This was an unintentional completionist run, aside from Pinnacle Station. I did every assignment in the game, even the collection missions. This Shepard ended up being aligned Paragon for the ending, but it's actually really close. Both bars are nearly full. Also, Garrus is more Paragon than Renegade, but neither is all the way done. Ended with 999 omni-gel and 9999999 credits.
