Hope you're exaggerating. Movies are still more mainstream than videogames I believe, and there were plenty of references to slavery or ransom in the Vikings, the Last Kingdom and similar movies. So I don't really see an issue here. Cinematically slashing a person into 10 pieces isn't much more humane, is it?
Would it not be cool to have the option to take prisoners instead of killing the enemies? After you defeat them, you tie them up, and either just leave or interact somehow, e.g. sell for cash from your camp. For that you could introduce a non-lethal mode on the actions wheel, like meditate or use torch. Some random bounty hunting events could be added to the game, similar to what we see in Red Dead Online.
Also, wouldn't it be cool to have the option to be taken prisoner by the enemy? E.g. when you see you're losing the fight. They disarm and tie you up, then you can either try to run and risk death or recapture, or wait and be bailed out and delivered to your camp, losing some cash. Again, option to surrender could be triggered on the actions wheel.
I could see it working very well outside of the main story. Would someone else like to have these options?
