Not quite sure. I was thinking that there might be a way to incorporate the idea. Maybe it goes something like this; While free roaming you rob/kill someone after they withdraw money from an ATM. Then as you start up the next mission there's either an APB on a person matching your decsription which ratches up the difficulty level or maybe just one of the those news break-ins which chronicles your actions. I know they were in IV to a degree but they were more focused on mission consequences. I thought it might make things more realistic if the free roam time could bear some consequence as well.
