If everybody could beam away anytime, this would take away any tension - at least for me.
So, I'm fine with it. After all, Ground Combat is not as important to me as Space Combat.
Hmm, I disagree.
Someone else mentioned it before, if you are loosing (or even winning) and you beam your away-team back to your ship, the other player (or NPC) wins. This will be as much fun as "not being able to beam back your team" but with the nice side-effect that your team is still alive.
