I think occasional resurrections are a useful tactic - for any kind of story 
that involves a lot of characters and some of them die, really; you don't have 
to go full-out fantastic resurrections, you can always go for 'faked my death'. 
And I think the best way to keep it from getting overused and lame is simply to 
avoid pointless shock deaths - deaths that are only there to Show How Serious 
Something Is. And you do avoid that, so I think you're good.
