It's a very different approach to the character and I guess you either love or hate it. But from the context of Nolan's Batman, the ending to TDKR was very fitting.
Well, one could argue that that approach represents a fundamental misunderstanding of the character. However, even though I was open to the idea of Bruce retiring from Batman and passing the mantle onto his successor like earth-2 Bruce did in the Silver Age, for me, Nolan's ending was utterly unsatisfying. It just didn't feel right that Batman's entire career was reduced to a 2 year fight against organized crime and then one last adventure 8 years later. I really hope they don't do anything similar to that with the MOS series.
