Densify - unwanted / unexpected results

I'm using desify to increase the number of vertices in my line feature so I get evenly spaced vetices along each straight line segment.
However the densify is not giving me the control I want - it is putting in more points than I require.

 

Example:

     Simple 2 point line - 1918m long

     Densify - Distance method - Distance = 600m

 

     Result: 6 point line with vertex distance = 384m.

     Expected result: 5 point line with vertex distance = 479m

 

This is a very simple example but my feature contains hundreds of thousands of km of lines so I'm getting a lot more points than I want.

 

Why is densify making this decision?  Is there a tool that offers more control?
