Or any CRPG to be honest. Which would be a good thing. Just look at say Baldur's Gate for example - the story is there, the background is there - but for the main plot it doesn't matter what gender you are, what class and not even which race. And I'm not even asking that much from TTG.

Really? We are bound by two of things regarding Lee: a) he is black, and that comes up as an issue ONCE, and b) he was sentenced to jail for murder. This second point is the only one having any real bearing on the game - it wouldn't matter if Lee had been young, old, hispanic, white...
And that all-roads-lead-to-rome has a less good equivalent term, and that is railroading
