If you didn't want the game to be seen as a narrative experience, why release a trailer with a heavey narrative context. It wasn't misleading the sense of gameplay. It's just the way the trailer made people feel was never replicated in the game, and gameplay trailers never made that clear either.

In the end it doesn't really matter at this point.
