Yep. I found it the same on ME2&3's little cutscene segments too, like the citadel docking of the Normandy.
Do you play on PC? I think it's quite frequent there. Game in 1080p60/whatever, and then the cutscenes are the same as in the console versions.
I found that in Deus Ex, when the graphics in the cutscenes were significantly lower quality than what I had been playing in real time.
I think cut-scenes in particular are actually anti-immersive. They take me out of the game. I hate them.
I'd much rather some sort of hi-res video patch or something. Or just to put it as hi-res as default.
I don't think I abhor cutscenes but, as with other contentious mechanics like QTE, they have to be used appropriately and implemented well. Or not at all.
