Now this is the kind of thing I like to see. Larian Studios' upcoming strategy title Divinity: Dragon Commander
will have plenty of tactical gameplay, but as an emperor you must also make shrewd political decisions. Larian put together this cool interactive Youtube trailer to demonstrate how this mechanic works in-game; here you must decide how to deal with the misinformation being spread by a tabloid newspaper. It reminds me a bit of Mass Effect and adds some much-needed humanity to the game, something that is sorely lacking in most strategy titles. They also have a discussion
about it on their development blog. Both are definitely worth a look.
