why is it in games like exile if you stole something and someone saw you the whole town would attack you but in geneforge you can steal items and no one cares?

Keep stealing enough items and eventually the town will go hostile. For most towns, you have to steal 3 things before being attacked.

I stole 10 items from a town in... G2 I think, no one cared, maybe because I stole 2 at a time, maybe it also works in diffrent part of towns, like steal something from north east side then north west, south west, south east ect.

Were the items actually marked as "not yours"? If so, did anyone actually see you stealing them?

I think both ways suck, it should be that if you steal something, the person who owns it should go hostile, and if you steal around three or something then the town.

A wicked smile for all the tears I hide
It hurts to hold all the pain I feel

Why should it be so? If I came to your house and stole something without anyone seeing me, there would be no consequence (i.e. anyone going hostile on me).
However, being able to steal 3 items WHILE someone saw me (in the game) doesn't make sense. Why not 1? or 4? And why would the whole town care? I guess the hostility has to kick in at some point :)
For the most part, it's pretty easy to steal things without being seen. At least things that matter.

Q.
