My only experience with playing an Elder Scrolls game is Daggerfall, and if the mmo can't replicate the experience of killing someone in the street and then running into a shop, so that guards will follow me in single file, shouting "Halt!

Well, I just don't want any part of it, then.
(Note: I've watched my daughter play Skyrim. I know they've gotten a lot better.
But still not that much better. If you can find a cul-de-sac of sorts, like a little alcove next to a shop where only one person can fit through, they do pretty much the same thing you're describing. It's how I racked up my first major bounty, in Riften.
In Morrowind, if you close a door behind you your pursuers can't even follow you into a room. You just see their animated legs glitchily poking through the door as they futilely run at it.
