I have set up a pattern lock code in my S3 and entered it too many times. I forgot the email account info as well. Is there any way to unlock it without doing a Master Reset?

Unfortunately, there is no other way to unlock it. You can either visit a local phone service shop to remove only the pattern lock, but that will cost you or you can perform a Master Reset which is recommended because the data files will be safe. The factory reset operation won't delete the custom files (music, videos, images, documents, etc), only the settings and applications.
