Exactly. Comics' Bruce never saw an end and that's why he continues to fight.
Nolan's Bruce saw an end when his main opposition, organized crime, was taken out of the equation. Even when we saw a few out of the ordinary villains(Ra's al Ghul, Scarecrow, Joker, Two-Face even if you want to count him), there was never going to be a rising tide of freaks but only a substantial few in Nolan's story. Bruce quit as Batman because this war he was in had a victor and he returned against just to defeat the League of Shadows for good.
The only little flaw in logic in this idea is that it begs the question on what happens with other crimes, but it can be easily said that organized crime is the reason why there is unorganized crime as people like Joe Chill are created because of the mobs as mentioned by Rachel in BB.
