Sure there is...
You can do multi-row / multi-column stitches.
I know a guy who routinely creates mega prints without a T/S (some are nearly 10' tall and 20' wide) by making multiple passes across a subject at different azimuths and assembling them in post.
Rotating a non-tilt-shift lens also rotates the sensor and gives you a different, cylindrical projection to using shift (which gives you a planar projection, as if you were using a larger sensor).
To correct for that, you need to distort the peripheral images, with the difficulty and loss of detail that distortion entails. Also, you often run into the annoying difficulty of the software not being able to distort one of the images perfectly, giving you artifacts which must be cloned out.
Not to say that it can't be done, of course - just that shifting gives better results.
Taken with a 16-35L II on 5D2 and stitched:
