A tactical retreat is part of every combat system - must be for a reason eh?

It will however rarely end a situation only delay it giving you time to get help, get a weapon, choose your ground, etc..

As for resolving conflict I don't think so. Unless the agressor chooses to let you go (or you can run faster) AND you have no need to go back to where he is then all you are left with is a very uncomfortable situation just waiting to explode.
