Yes will add something like that, since I keep getting people frustrated because they cannot win the battle :lol:

Julia :)

And after three earlier confrontations with Julia in the course of the game, in all of which you are unable to overpower her, you really should have found out that she's physically superior to Tanya.

Maybe go for two difficulty settings for the Boss Fights? Normal and Easy, Easy giving loads of hints?

Try this STEP BY STEP guide and you can't fail:
Spoiler:
1. Kick Julia away from you
2. Force Julia's hands away from your neck
3. Plead for your life
4. Cease struggling and go limp
5. Electrocute

Since we're talking about different boss fights..
Spoiler:
Is it actually possible for Tom not to get killed when he's against Luke? it seems to be an impossible feat.

Yes. It is actually easy, if you know how to play boss battles except ... the second Julia one. (Tom-Sarah is a bit different too, but not too much.)
Spoiler:
Most of the times there are some hints what the next question should be. Sometimes not, then you have to:

Save (or use the auto-save)
try one option after another
you know you picked the right option if the next time round the button is gone -> save again
if the same buttons are displayed, you know you picked the wrong one: reload
repeat this until you have completed all steps for winning the battle

Pretty much all the boss battles I wrote (i.e. all except for the first) follow the same scheme: start with either an open question or a "conversation opener", and then find the correct way to logically continue the conversation (i.e. if someone says "I did it for X", next ask "What would X think about what you did?")

The Tom/Sarah boss fight works a bit differently: here, the objective is to stay in your role and, at the same time, don't say anything that could make her suspicious of you. For example, when she asks you how you met a certain person, and you know that this person doesn't like to socialize, don't say that you met in a club.
