Playing word games because you are dominated when your character would normally just stomp face is a bad as cheating, IMO.
Also - if a character has a low wisdom or int - and the dominatrix said "take care of the rest of the party" why would one assume that means to murder them? There has to be reasonableness on the part of the dominatee. If the GM gives an out in words, one should take it.
even "kill them all" might allow a minion to be attacked, or one could go for animal companions and eidolons or high AC types.
There are gray areas that can be kind of fun, though--you just have to work with the GM.
My Ranger/Zen Archer got secretly possessed and was told to kill another character "to the best of her ability". Well, she had Freebooter's bane, so I asked the GM if using a move action to bane the other party member was in the spirit of the command. GM agreed, so my character's opening move was, "Come on, everybody! Let's kill the fighter!"--which alerted the rest of the party to what was going on so they could beat the crap out of me before I unloaded 4 arrows into fighter.
Another time, my cuisinart TWF was ordered to "stop him/keep him away from me"--"him" being her dance partner and husband. So she "grappled" him, which left her partner saying, "I love you, too, dear, but this is hardly the time!"
