Exactly. If it's legit — you did something wrong and a ticket is merited — well then you'll get one. (Or I dunno, you may still get off, if they're feeling nice that day or something.)

If it's not legit — if it is, as you say, a shakedown — then the cop will just need the requisite amount of time to realize that you're not going to play along and offer a bribe, at which point it's way more hassle to write you the ticket and go through the procedures and way less money, too, as others who are going right by while the cop stands there, wasting time with you, might be better targets. So you'll be sent on your way with some sort of story and warning.
