Being able to escape from any fight you wish for the price of a story point trivializes iron mode, making it nearly meaningless.

I think the reason the points can be used to avoid fights is for iron man. Without it, you can usually just reload your save and dodge the fight (and therefore the SP sink) trivially.

Yeah I wouldn't play iron man if I couldn't use story points to scoot out of engagements after my fleet is already low cr from several battles.
