The problem with TDKR's ending is it contradicts the previous two movies. Bruce never ever intended to retire and pass on the Batman mantle to someone else. Batman was supposed to inspire Gotham's people into rising up out of apathy. Fixing their own city after being inspired by Batman's example that their city doesn't belong to criminals.
TDKR just had him pass the buck to some rookie he hardly knows a day.
