Actually, I think Field of Glory 2 did a great representation of morale, as units usually trade blow without dealing much damage until one side gets disheartened and begins to get disorganized then rout.

Actually, Panic in XCOM is harsher than you make it sounds: it is not that infrequent for it to happen whenever someone bites the dust, and the consequences can be dire, to a comical extent, with the infamous panic chain (soldier A panicks, shoots soldier B which makes soldier C panic and shoot soldier D...).
I'd say the consequences of panic can be too strong.
The main issue is that it only last for one or two turns, and then, they are back to normal.
