There in lies the whole issue. A refusal to just call something bad, revert and move on. Stubborness will just waste everyone's time and money.
They wanted to make it clear what order the missions were supposed to be played in. It was kind of awkward in the old system because the accept dialogue for some missions would reveal the outcome of a mission you hadn't completed yet.
