>Simply put, you sneak up on an unarmed burglar and shoot him, then you had no justifiable reason to believe unlawful force was going to be used against you

Incorrect. The law assumes that if the person you killed had unlawfully entered your home or was in the process of unlawfully entering your home and you were aware of this fact then you had reasonable belief that the use of deadly force was necessary.
