It felt like the story was over , even if I didnt like the creative choices they made.

I sort of view it in a similar vein of the Nolan trilogy in that , Raimi, like Nolan, completed and bookended the story threads and character archs that were put in place from the first film. While Spiderman 3 wasn't a sort of total ending that TDKR was , and could have spawned more sequels, I still think that it was a complete ending to the story that was told over the first two films.
Oh yeah, I totally agree. While I would have loved to see more from Raimi, SM3 wraps up enough for the series to feel completed.

I'm grateful that Raimi got the rare 3 film set. God knows how I mourn the potential third Singer X-Men film we could have had.
