I loved the morale system in total war and any other game that uses it. Like Aothane said if its not done right its going to cause problems.
For the last comment you said, Generals/commanders had/have to deal with morale all the time. If you read history general/commanders did things to keep morale high and only a foolish one didn't pay attention to the mental state their men were at. Not all armies are like WW2 soviet russia, who killed their men if they retreated.
