Wotr flexible roleplay?

One of things that i thought was a cardinal sin and killed a lot of immersion was the rigid choices, i hope i phrase this right, but when i wanna roleplay i being forced to act or do certain things to get the endings i want, perfect example is i NEED to take some companions to certain places or make sure they are there when i pick up a item or that convo is locked out forever, so i hope i WOTR there will be mutiple avenues for the result players want, so ppl can roleplay the sort of charactor they want without being forced to bring companions just to progress or get aproval.
