Gaming Survey: Character Death In Computer RPGs

Death - it can be a hassle or it can be exhilarating when playing a computer RPG.  What do you think about death in your games?  Should there be a penalty for dying outside the Starter Zone?

What should happen when you get killed outside of the Starter Zone?

Like how much time are you, as a player, willing to lose? Are there any successful games with this death model you can give as examples?
