When characters lost in battle, after the battle there should be a burial ceremony (some at sea, some at miltary graveyards around the world).
But more than a mere ceremony, random members of the team have 1 or more flashbacks to certain key moments during battle when the departed did something herioc, survived something terrible, etc.
Those events could be triggered by those moments where the skycam(?) follows the action.
This gives the player a chance to reflect on the game so far (not to mention a moment or two to calm down so they don't throw the contoller or keyboard at the screen !!!)
