I like the idea with bravery bonus to charisma checks but also agree that not all fighters should be charmers, so how about making that one of several options I could think of the following added to the bravery class feature:
The fighter chooses one of the following types of bravery, he gains the associated bonuses in addition to the bonus to will saves against fear:
Confidence The fighter radiates an aura of confidence that make him an impressive individual. He gains his bravery bonus bonus to all charisma based checks.
Daring the fighter takes physical challenges without hesitation. He gains his bravery bonus as a morale bonus to acrobatics, fly, ride and all strength-based checks.
Discipline The fighter is focused on his tasks and hard to deter. The fighter gains his bravery bonus to all wisdom based checks.
Ideally, he'd get all of these. Bravery is just that bad, and since it's capped at +5, none of these bonuses are ever going to be 'broken'.You could rein them in further by making them morale bonuses so they don't stack with certain other buffs, instead of being untyped, if you needed to.
But yeah, when I did a fighter rewrite, Bravery got massively rewritten into something useful and viable at all levels.
