This a trick question, Jake?

Of course you can use whatever pattern you want in your installation, but it seems the product manufacturer is trying to save you some grief and also save themselves from complaints because people might have unrealistic expectations about their tiles.

You want a 50% offset? Make a 50% offset. You end up with an unacceptable amount of lippage, that's no longer the tile manufacturer's problem.

Your application, your tile, your choice. Pretty simple, really.

My opinion; worth price charged.
