In the mission A Friend Worth Dying For in the Lost Tales of Greece DLC, one of the support quests is to check an island where there's a supposed cyclops. after entering the cave you choose whether or not to kill this cyclops in this cave, which then you realize he's just a large one eyed human, if you keep him alive and finish the quest you have to takeover the beach for him, he sits on the edge of a rock, asking Alexios/Kasandra if we think the beach is pretty, and after get the choice to end him of his misery or compliment him and keeping him alive. i'm not sure if this is a reference to the movie Of Mice and Men, but the whole vibe felt like the ending, where George Milton kills Lennie Small.
