Not had that yet but I found out the hard way that defending yourself against soldiers is a stupid idea. I do quite like that you have to generally approach things like you would in real life; its usually best to run away. I am going to try to play this as me, not as Hero Ser Mykel of Hackney, and talk my way out of things or bravely legging it.
Also got a nice little achievement for burning to death in a jail cell during the prologue. Nicked an apple, got caught by the guards and sent to nick then the invading Cumans burned down the village. Nice.
