I'm having the same issue, was playing it earlier today, no problem now I click it, it says it launches but only it doesn't. I tried repairing, don't really want to try uninstalling. Any help would be appreciated.
In Origin, menu top left corner > Origin > Application Settings > INSTALLS & SAVES > Cloud storage > OFF
Please create a DxDiag in text file format, also go to your Reliability monitor (Press the windows key and "R" at the same time and copy or type "perfmon /rel" (without the quotes) in > ENTER and look if it has ME2 entries.
If yes double click at the last one, copy it to the clipboard, (Bottom left corner) save it to a text file and load it up together with the DxDiag. You can do that with the "choose file" button at the bottom right corner of the reply window.
I was running ME2 after reinstalling it. Origin wouldn't recognize it (ME 1 and ME3 were recognized). I linked ME2 to Origin via "Non EA Games". and I was running fine. After a couple for freezes during the mission to save Thane Krios ' son, suddenly the Play button in the ME2 window doesn't work. Button doesn't move. It is as if it is only an image, not an operable button.
See if you can launch it through the .exe file or start menu shortcut. Make sure ME2 has fully stopped running, because I have had a few crashes lately in which a game is still running a process basically as a background one, but shouldn't be. When it leaves a process running, the only ways I got to fix it was to open task manager and find the process or to restart my entire machine. Last option would be to input the full code for ME2 into Origin and make it a full Origin game(if that is an options by it being a disk version of the game instead of a digital one).
