It would also be useful to make 'good ending, bad ending' missions.
From my experience the only real way that you can do multiple endings is with multiple dialogues. There are lots of little things, from choices of enemy and even choices of direction, but the bottom line is: the last thing in the storyboard has to apply to every path taken. And almost everything that is really optional happens outside of the storyboard with triggers and invis objects, etc.

The story will always basically be a linear collection of maps, with some ingenious workarounds that constantly fight with the storyboard, while confusing the player because of a lack of way points, etc.

Some folks pull it off, but they are really fighting with every limitation along the way. They have to eventually hide the nature of what the player is doing.
