Soft rolls v crusty rolls

I know there are various methods for making a crust on rolls.  Is there a method that guarantees soft non brown rolls?

You can use a Tangzhong method and/or add butter or potatoes or another type of fat which will make the crust and crumb soft.  Brushing the dough with butter or milk will also make the crust softer.
