1. Have lockpicking device that has to be researched
2. Shoot the door open
3. Aliens have no idea how to pick locks so would have to shoot it open if they'd want to pass through
4. Alien Base doors could have some sort of lockdown method that we can't pick and would have to blast through it
Just a few suggestions

"Base will self destruct in 3 Turns. Thank you and have a nice day."
Oops, but I meant to open that door! Eeek!
But now I wonder, should forced entry with explosives be any better for you
Might be kinda nasty to discover you'd found the Fusion Ball storage

Imagine how deadly they be if they would think a LOT before doing stuff.
I dont believe they would let a base filled with trained enemies survive - they'd rather
find out the position, and then infiltrate there when for example most people are out
with an avenger flying to another site... and when they return, they be greeted with deadly
traps... too smart aliens would be deadly

Might also be fun to find people who couldn't evacuate who you had to rescue or put out of their own misery And maybe if its early after the aliens had stormed it, maybe there's a soldier, engineer or three holed up in one section of the base still mustering some kind of fight. Atmospheric stuff like this fun to explore.
And with regard to the original subject of this post, doors...It also gives you and the aliens things to do in strategic ways. Booby traps, changing door codes after you've swept an area etc. before moving on to a new area to clear. Course, can't do anything really if they'd shot holes in walls 'cept maybe plant proximities in those cases, but its still interesting to ponder.
