Skyrim looks like it's taking a realer (more realistic?) approach. maybe bashing the giant's knees or slicing its achilles so it falls down, then stabbing the head or spine.

Assassinations probably only work on humanoid targets, and then under certain conditions.

Run up and reach under its loincloth and grab on tight. Use that to swing around up onto its back and stab it in the back of its head.
