If I am told to do a mission. And all the missions are simply do this do that without choice, then laughing at the character for doing that, is laughing at the game mechanics of having only one way to do the mission. Or game sabotage at best, since you cant give a negative for doing what the game says is the game flow pattern. If you were wrong it should be because of some choice other then choosing to play the game in the only method it has.

Lots of people probably thought that. I just did the mission, and some how it is the char fault when there was no other choice given? If there was any way, or hint or method for an alternative flow, that would make sense, but in its current state it is bad.

It is true you could cancel the missioin, but that is not the best way when from what I have heard that is a big story line with many more missions.
I like the storyline but hope at a later level we can get involve in rooting them out even if it meant you have the option to do a mission chain that causes you to be treated as a traitor until they are all exposed
