In that case it has come down to sensors not being as advanced as they should be, so over time we should expect it to become much smother.

I think in order to generate a useable amount of energy, the sensation will have to be quite forceful as it's utilizing kinetic energy. It also important to keep in mind that regenerative braking is believed to greatly extend the life of braking systems, as the parts do not seem to wear as quickly as traditional brake set ups.

Here's a video of the Leaf's e-Pedal braking system, where they say if can hold the car and brake on a 30% grade. Really impressive, though I'd still use the brakes in the winter for peace of mind.

Pretty cool technology for sure and it would be really interesting to drive with only one pedal. I agree that, this would be a little hard to wrap your head around during inclement or winter months. Not sure I would feel comfortable leaving so much control in the hands of the car itself.
