Online dating etiquette: misrepresenting who you are.

I recently had the experience of going on a date with someone who was very thin in her pictures. She was fat in person. I sat through the date and did not have a good time.
How should I have played that? Should I have said something? Walked away? What's ok or not ok to do there?
We met and I could tell immediately I wasn't attracted to her and wasn't going to be attracted to her. Of course, it would be rude to leave upon meeting for that reason alone, and sometimes people look different in pictures than in person. But this was an extreme difference, and her pictures were surely old, photoshopped or otherwise deliberately misleading.
