Answering the original post, heroes killing evil minions is a common thing that happens in lots of fantasy and sci fi (and even just action/adverture in general), and it never bothers the heroes. I chalk it up to being a book/movie/tv show trope. But it is a bit silly when you think about how emotional the heroes get if they kill one named character, but unnamed, faceless people, they don't care.
