Default moving "around" objects?

can a unit move, lets say, 3 inches in one direction (lets say "down"), two inches another way ("right") and then one inch another way ("up")? they would have still only moved 6 inches. so my question is, must a unit move in a straight line?

no they do not have too move in a straight line. The end move ends up less than the distance. You do not have to move up to your maximum distance anyway. So I would definitely allow it. however this does not extend to assult. Also form Assult it is implied that it would be possible to move in a not straight line since otherwise it would say it in the movement section too.
