does a reaction involving transfer of an electron between atoms with slight difference in electronegativity still count as a redox reaction?

Redox reaction is a reaction where the oxidation state(s) of the species change(s). So if you have doubts about a reaction, write the balanced chemical equation and assign oxidation numbers.

Do you have a specific reaction in mind?

That's completely up to your personal preferences. The reaction won't change whether you name it redox or not.
