I hope you guys can help me with a small project. Does anyone have the German spelling of "In a world of compromise, some men don't." I don't want to just plug it into Google translate, hopefully someone can confirm the correct German translation that is used.

According to our 16 year old German exchange student (her English is better than mine):

In einer Welt aus Kompromissen, einige Männer machen keine.

That sounds pretty close to me. I'm a native speaker but I'm from Alsace so it's a bit different.

Interesting question, but has anyone ever seen HK use this slogan in German? Is it just part of their English language marketing?

Just a question.

The english wording sounds a lot better than the German translation, this is why perhaps HK only has that slogan running in English?

This is probably correct. I had only seen this add in US publications and a few English language international magazines.
