Reloading isn't inherently cooler than having your followers finish the fight and then help you to your feet.
I agree, although I think it needs to be carefully balanced. KotOR was simply too easy and in Bioshock (a bit different, I know), dying can be tactic - don't waste a health potion, just take the death and regroup as you run back from the teleporter.
