It's because Mafia II and L.A. Noire share a similar time period, that's all. Also, it's important to note that Rockstar supported in the development, but the primary development was done by Team Bondi. I love the way it plays, it's different, but it works. This isn't GTA after all, it wouldn't be right if it played out the same.

You can set waypoints, but since GPS obviously wasn't around in the 40s, they can't highlight the ideal path for you - instead, if you get lost, you'll notice your partner gives you directions. I don't consider this a flaw, it's a small detail that makes the game very unique and realistic.

Pretty sure Rockstar has stated several times now that it is not "open world" in the traditional Rockstar fashion.

You can roam around the city after you finish the game. Not sure if it is possible before hand... you need to enter the CASE section of the main menu and select it from one of the desk folders, depending what desk you want to roam in (Patrol, Homicide, Vice, etc.)
