The goal is not to have the monsters surrender.

Rather, the goal is to end the combat when its outcome is clear, because at that point it becomes boring to the players. You can do this in some cases by having monsters surrender, but you could just as easily say "ok, you guys kill the others with ease, next scene".

Spending a long time on a foregone conclusion is not compelling gameplay.
