I figured Cain would be an ENTJ by the way she seems to take things into her own hands. She only puts up a front on following military protocols when really she bends the rules to her advantage. If a subordinate does not follow her orders, killing them is not out of the question. Her dialogue about being as efficient and deadly as a 'razor' sounds very ENTJ to me also.
As for Shepard and Exile, even though the player's actions can alter the character, they still have personality traits that you cannot change. You can't make them act outside of what they would want to do. I figured Exile to be ENTJ by her leadership qualities and her speech options are mostly N-like. Sheperd can act very P-like according to the player's choices, but overall s/he runs a very tight ship and operates very business-like, as Aleksei said, but can act in an unorthodox manner if that's what s/he thinks will get the job done. Plus one look at the captain's quarters and you know Shepard is a J :P
Yeah, good points. The more I think about it, the more similar Cain seems to become to a renegade female Shepard. Also, I'm a J, but my room is a mess.

I believe Lee Adama would be a better example of an INFJ, as he is someone who always tries act according to his values and ideals. I remember one time when Roslin advised Lee (as a politician) that instead of always doing the right thing, he should learn to do things the 'smart way.'
Anyway, I think she was more INFJ when she was a teacher but had to become an INTJ as President.
Still, while I would agree that Lee is also an INFJ, Roslin seems to be very emotionally driven as well. That's probably one of the reasons they get along nicely. She has simply developed her T quite extensively.
Maleficent, from Sleeping Beauty, particularly her role in the Kingdom Hearts series.
Freya, from Final Fantasy IX.
Beatrix, from Final Fantasy IX.
Aya Brea, from Parasite Eve.
Jill Valentine, from Resident Evil, perhaps.
Cordelia Gray, from the detective novels by P.D. James.
Sara Sidle, from CSI: Las Vegas.
Sigrid Harald, from The Sigrid Harald series of detective novels.
I could list many fictional INTJ males, but females are much more difficult to discern. The characteristics of an INTJ are generally considered to be very masculine, and it is therefore far more difficult to detect female INTJs, unless they are extreme cases, due to the fact that it is easy to disregard their rational qualities and focus instead on their more "personable" traits - if any are present. I have to search for them in niche genres or amongst stereotypical characters, such as detectives and scientists.
Since the INTJ archetype is very unfeminine, many character developers, unless purposely designing a character who is completely detached, cold, and calculating, give their female INTJs stronger F traits, and especially in the case of anime and video games, tend to increase the sex appeal of the character, which is not a common INTJ trait.
