I'm not sure which way to go with it though, so I'll just post here and see the response: If an entire squad is wiped out, and a medix comes along and rebuilds one of them, does that trooper still make the Last Squadie Standing roll? And if so, should he only do it if the Medix fails to save the rest of the squad?

I kind of like it, but I would make it more of a die roll chance for it to happen.
For example, if you have a four-man squad and they all get wiped out except for 1 guy, then roll a 1d6:
6 — Unit becomes enraged at the loss of teammates, adrenaline kicks into overload and the unit gets the +2" movement, 1 extra attack.
5–2 — Unit gets no bonuses.
1 — Unit is completely overcome with the horrors of war. Unit gives up, goes home and becomes a member of the Green Party. Unit can only preform defensive maneuvers and attempts to retreat off the battlefield.
