In play, this highlighted moment is a moment of judgment. Of interpretation. Someone has to read the game's fiction and draw conclusions about it.
I feel like this is the hinge point of Humanity checks in Sorcerer (and bonus dice), Fan Mail in PTA, Spiritual Attributes in Riddle of Steel, Beliefs in Burning Wheel, as well as the scene judging in Bliss Stage as Ben mentioned.
Which means it's a pretty important point in play, especially when tied to larger reward cycles.
