How many missions are actually assassinations?

In which you choose how to kill the selected target(s)? Not including missions where the assassination goes to an automatic cutscene (ex. Diana).

Hard to tell... Depends on how you look at things.

Let's say a level is divided into 4 Parts... The first three being sneaking and approaching , then the last part has you kill 3 targets...

Do you consider only the last part ot be an assasination ? Do you consider the last part to be 3 assasinations ? Do you consider the approach parts/escape parts to be devoid of assasinations ? If the kill occurs in a cutscene, is it still an assasination ? Likewise, if a mission like Attack of the Saints have you kill like 8 targets in a quick succession, does this end up evening up for the levels where you kill no one ?

To me , a "Level" is the sum of each parts... With that way of looking at things, most levels have at least one assasination going on... Although there are sneaking segments without any mandatory kill. I also don't really care about not killing targets for two reasons :

1 - I can kill pretty much anyone I want anyways... So if I feel like killing any random guy, I can.
2 - If I absolutely want to have targets in every single part of the game, I can play or create custom contracts... So who cares if there's no target in that particular part... Just make a contract and choose a cool target...
