Agreed. It's unrealistic. After all, from the help:
"There is a small chance that a Jock may survive the explosion of his Titan's Engine. It depends on his Survival skill, Life Support and luck."
See? Just increase their survival skills and outfit their Titans with better Life Support systems. And if the situation gets dangerous, don't be a hero.. bail out. Only Jocks in Recon and maybe Light Recons may not get enough warning (i.e. one-hit-kill explosions). A squad with any amount of experience will most likely be piloting larger Titans, and you should be able to judge if you need to eject or not.
