OFMG -- I just RTFM!

So, I wrote in a previous post that Mass Effect doesn't have a system of having your squad mates focus fire or take cover.

Well -- cough -- I decided to take a gander at the manual while eating dinner tonight. And, guess what. You can exercise some limited squad commands. Of course, I had been experimenting with the D-pad for the previous 20 hours of game play and really only discovered "go there" and "follow me". No combination of mashing the left and right arrow seemed to do anything useful in terms of obvious squad behavior or any kind of verbal acknowledgment.

I'm off the Xbox for a couple of days, but I'll try out this much sought after functionality to see how well it works.
