One of the problems with the limitations of the game engines for TR1 to TR4, is that the rule is
you can only allow no more than five baddies in one room including Lara Croft, or the body parts of the baddies start disappearing as Lara rotates her view of the room. So it is imperative in the game design to limit the number of baddies, so you do not end up with loads of baddies in one room, either by kill trigger or zone-ing the baddies so they are stuck to one specific area.

It is not the first time, instead of killing the baddies, say due to lack of ammo, I have instead rushed through an area and the baddies stop chasing Lara after a while, as you move into a new area.

Note that five baddy limit does not seem to apply to some New generation TR4 custom games as I have seen a higher limit of baddies in one room and it works OK, not sure how many though to reach a limit.
