First, killing them things can hardly be described as drama. Second, conflicts can be resolved in different ways. Police negotiators exist for a reason.

But instead of de-emphasizing or trivializing combat, it should be relished and savored. Like sex in a good romantic-comedy, it should be infrequent. It should be rare because it's valuable.
No arguing here.
