Until ME3 is released, not much is known about this. One would assume that if you were level 30, your character would be around level 5 in ME3... just have to wait til more info comes out.

Only completed playthroughs can be transferred from ME1 -> ME2, so again, I would assume the same would be applicable with ME2 -> ME3. I'm guessing you know how to have all your squad survive the Suicide mission in ME2, so if you do a second playthrough, keep them alive etc and easy to carry over.

For info about the save file transfer:

[Source URL: http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Save_File_Transfer#Mass_Effect_.E2.86.92_Mass_Effect_2_.E2.86.92_Mass_Effect_3]Mass Effect → Mass Effect 2 → Mass Effect 3[/url]

[quote]As with Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3 will allow the player to transfer their save from the previous game, carrying over their character and plot decisions. In addition to importing Mass Effect 2 plot decisions, Mass Effect 3 will import any Mass Effect or Mass Effect: Genesis decisions that were imported into Mass Effect 2. However, Mass Effect 3 will not accept a Mass Effect 2 save game where Shepard was killed at the conclusion of the suicide mission, Mass Effect 2 is considered the end of the main series for that Shepard.

Mass Effect 3 will reportedly import over a thousand variables from a Mass Effect 2 save game.

Character transfer:

When importing a Mass Effect 2 character into Mass Effect 3 the character will be brought forward exactly as they left off. New players will be given an approximation of what they would have had at the conclusion of Mass Effect 2.

Major Plot Decisions

Mass Effect Edit

The following major choices from Mass Effect are imported into Mass Effect 3, and have a visible effect on the game.

■Rescuing Kaidan Alenko or Ashley Williams during the Virmire mission.

Whichever character survived will have become a Spectre and will be available as a squad member.

■Killing Wrex during the Virmire: Wrex and the Genophage confrontation.

Wrex will not appear if he was killed.

■Rachni Queen on Noveria.

Mass Effect 2 Edit

The following major choices from Mass Effect 2 are imported into Mass Effect 3, and have a visible effect on the game.

■The outcome of the Suicide Mission.

If Garrus Vakarian and Tali'Zorah vas Normandy survived, they will be available as squad members. If Jack, Jacob Taylor, Legion, Mordin Solus, Miranda Lawson, Thane Krios, and Zaeed Massani survived, they will appear in some capacity[/quote]

Hope that answers your question.

I think one reason why you could only build up to level 30 in ME 2 was they were building ME 2 to carry over into ME 3,  I think that is one reason there was a major overhall from ME to ME 2.  They designed ME 2's gameplay to be easily added to and expanded on by ME 3.  My personal belief is that an imported level 30 character will still be at level 30 when you import them.  I have heard that weapons and armor also carries over.

@KaroinPHX09----If you noticed during any of the demos at E3, that showed the squad page, they were at level 18, so I don't think Shepard will be at level 30 at the beginning of ME3.  That does not mean we are starting over because BioWare as already confirmed that you do not.  We will have the weapons from ME2.  The Mattock is used in the demos.  That is my favorite AR.

Actually, having a level 18 character in the demo doesn't invalidate anything Karoin says. If someone starts a new character for ME3, like the demo people undoubtedly did, and doesn't carry over a previous character from the previous games, they would start at level 1. But that doesn't necessarily rule out the possibility that level 30s in ME2 will carry over as level 30s in ME3.

[/quote]For the purposes of trying to show off as much as they could (powers, skill trees etc...) they would naturally have to use a character that was at a decent level - using a level 1 in a demo would be pointless.

 

Honestly don't think you can come to any kind of reasoned opinion as to what level you will start ME3 at based on what was shown at E3.

 

yeah like Schuey said it was a demo character (or premeade character). a character made by the developers to be able to easily handle the shown demo easily to prevent slow downs/deaths. same was done in the Skyrim demo. if you notice Tod Howards character there had a destruction skill of 95 (out of 100).
