I can't even begin to fathom where your threshold for "innovative" must lie.

Yes, you ultimately end up at Graybox, but you have 4 different handler options. 16 different handler bonus options. You have options to ignore, spare, leave for dead, or kill 2 or 3 different people. You can join Halbeck or not. If you do, there are 3 potential endings. If you don't there about 7 or 8 (trying to list them in my head) different options.

I see a developer that put a lot of effort into making choices matter. You seem inclined to disagree ("binary"?). So perhaps you could tell us what would get your attention?

EDIT: Heck, even if you choose to join Halbeck and betray Leland, you get two options for how that goes down.
