    Are you asking why would a great warrior (like Lysander) run away from a battle or the actual mechanics of moral?

    If you are looking for fluff, the explanation (however weak it is) can be found in this bit of fluff from the main rule book, "A fall back move is a fighting withdrawal rather than an out-and-out rout...give troops the chance to retire to a stronger position, to regroup, etc..." (pg. 45 first paragraph).

    Because from his view point the situation is potentially dire?

    You don't always get to see all hostiles in combat and usually you should be expecting the worse when you encounter them, it's better to fight on your own terms than to rush straight into the middle of an ambush/pincer attack. Divide and conquer, not the other way around.

    Morale checks shouldnt just be thought of as "eh oh, my buddy Trooper/Space Marine/Bug named Fred got killed, I may be next. I better run away. Fast!" Sure, that happens sometimes, but it could also be "Its getting hot here. We're in a crossfire. We better fallback and find a different route to go." Space Marines would be much more likely to think the latter. And since they regroup at the end of a fallback move, it fits. They fallback, regroup, and the next turn they start looking for a new approach to get where they need to go. Great Heroes don't get to be great for very long if they always charge headfirst into withering lascannon fire. Sure, thats heroic. But it also makes for a dead hero in the long run.
