The only difference here, is of course, that we actually see and make the rolls. Pass/Fail skill checks are made against either a hard number, or a percentage chance, so they're still a roll of the dice.

Or they could do what a lot of games do and just not show you the dialogue option at all if you can't pass it. People seem weirdly fine with missing dialogue options as long as they don't know they are there.
