In reality, I think a commander, weighing the alternatives, would take the lesser of two evils and retreat into the empty, uncontrolled region.
As has also already been stated, there is gamey taste to "retreating through the enemy". This of course will only occur if the defending force is trapped by enemy and/or unpassable territory. This also assumes that a line of battle is always formed perpendicular to the line of march of the attacking force and that therefore the line of retreat must also be perpendicular to the attacking unit's line of march.
