Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Start a dialog with enemy near, but not near enough to have the fight mode. If the enemy comes close enough to attack, you will be attacked during the dialog. Bain Massani encounter is the easiest to repeat this, but it happens elsewhere too.

If there are enemies far enough so you can start a dialog with an NPC, but the enemies are near enough to wander near you, they will attack you while you're in the dialog. This results in a screen where you have the "you're dead" screen options, no Ryder visible but you can still move the dialog selector and continue the conversation, although Ryder's lines are not heard. None of the "you're dead" options work until you finish the conversation.


Easy place to repeat this is where you meet Bain Massani. Ignore the Kett and other creatures in the next bulding, walk in and begin talking to Bain.


For the curious, here's what happens:

The same for me. Happened already many times on many different Planets. Once I got killed during a cutscene resulting in an infinite loading screen.
