What you're saying is of course absolutely true. Though not even close to a Good vs. Evil choice model, it is a much more "realistic" and believable set of choices you're presented with in The Witcher. Heck, I sat staring the at the screen for a long time before I finally decided which faction I was going to support and that is a great example of an actual CHOICE rather than picking the correct color corresponding to the alignment you chose in the character generation screen.
Mass Effect doesn't have "good" and "evil" choices either. There's no "alignment" or any such nonsense. Or are you comparing to some other game(s)?

Playing devil's advocate here, so everything hinges on one choice between two options made in one conversation in The Witcher. How is that so believable?
