That is a valid concern I guess, especially for people that dont like to replay.

Personally if the reasoning (or cause effect relation) is not too lame and
immersion breaking I dont mind terribly. This would not harm realism i.e I think

The example they have given in an earlier presentation was either killing
or not a prisoner with bandit connections (bear in mind that I may remember
the details wrong but the gist of it is here). The cruel and inhuman choise
(executing the poor snivelling bastard) results of the bandits lacking information
to kill a fellow witcher that will provide some added muscle in the endgame. On
the other hand it will lead to the end of a female friend which could provide a
possibly romantic sidepart of the story.Not killing him would mean that your Witcher friend dies but your female friend lives.

So, a deeply moral choise for either added muscle or interesting sidestory with
perhaps roleplaying (and xp ?) possibilities in the trade of. I am ok with that
if they remain true to that example's philosophy (comes from an early video
preview possibly last years E3 with Madej narrating).
