The way I see it, the Yes/No and the And/But refer to different things.Yes/No = Did I succeed in the intended task? This is your "technical" answer.And/But = Did anything else happen that was not part of the intended task?The full range of options, of course, is: Yes And Yes Yes But No But No No And
I suppose, in that context, there could be a "Maybe" in the context of "It is not appropriate to resolve that action yet" either due to fictional positioning, or because of pending a mechanical result
I think there are many, many possibilities for blurring those categories. It's not just a question of "yes/no/but/and" (which are simplifications), but of all kinds of nuance in resolution.
The other way around is very interesting, too
