I agree that particularly when young cats have a mouse they usually end up playing it to death, hearing a little mousie squeal in pain isn't nice either. Many years ago I did have indoor/outdoor cats, who hunted in adjacent field. The problem with mice being eaten is they can be somewhat messy. Most cats learn not to eat the bitter gallbladder which makes them vomit and will separate it out from the other organs, so you have this to clean up and I remember having a cat that didn't like to eat feet, and another that only ate the head.....so yeah....can be yucky! Crickets are a good cleaner alternative. My guys used to love them and grasshoppers.
