One possible approach, following your lead:

 {APressed = Automatic, BPressed = Automatic},

    "Option A", (APressed = "Pressed"; BPressed = Automatic;
     Print[10!]), Appearance -> Dynamic[APressed]],
    "Option B", (BPressed = "Pressed"; APressed = Automatic;
     Print[10!]), Appearance -> Dynamic[BPressed]]}]
