Games with hidden objectives

So I'm reading The Guns of August and the flight of the Goebon and Breslau. Time and again the British Navy (and 1st Lord of the Admirality, Winston Churchill) misguess how to best intercept and engage, because they mistakenly assume the assume that the ships are going to Bombard French Forts and harrass French convoys.Recommend
In fact, they do a bit of bombarding, but then the German War Office orders them to go entice Turkey to enter WWI. Since Britain (like the rest of Europe) dismisses Turkey as a power, they can't conceive the German plan and so miss numerous opportunities to stop Turkish entry in the the war.
This got me thinking about one of my grail game ideas ... a game where you know the capabilities of your opponent, but not the objectives. In short, games where the fog of war are hidden in the motivations, not the mechanics.
