Bought these recently, had one game, they look great.

One question though. Is it right to understand that once you are in melee, thats pretty much it (with a few defined exceptions)?

That is, for most units there is no recoil, break off, retreat etc.? You stay in melee until you win or rout?

My buddy and I were wondering how you could recreate a Hastings or Cannae where units deliberately broke off from combat, or deliberately gave up ground.

P.44 has the Disengage rules. It's specific to certain units, mounted units vs. infantry etc. Any supporting unit on flank or rear can disengage. But if you are looking at Hvy inf vs. Hvy inf they slug it out.
