I see your point. However, I don't think that leading someone down a certain path just to pull the rug out from under their feet is the best way to prove a point. There's not a lot of self-discovery going on here. It's just that the creators would rather lead you to where they want you to go than have you lead yourself.
Maybe I'm trying to make it more complicated than it needs to be. FWIW, it was an interesting exercise and completing it made me think more critically about the project. Mission accomplished!
