I found it very anticlimactic and out of place. I'm not a fan of the Bat at all. It didn't fit well with the universe in my opinion as well as Catwoman and her antics.
Everything you said there is highly subjective, so I won't argue, but I have to say I couldn't feel more differently when it comes to that last statement. The Bat and Catwoman were two of my favorite aspects of the film.
