I certainly wish, personally, that they had ended the TNG
saga with that final feature-length episode. It said everything they wanted to say at the end and finished everything off with a neat little bow.
The final poker scene where Picard finally joins the crew for a game was the most beautiful ending they could have hoped for. I still tear up a little at the end, especially when Troi says, "You were always welcome" or something like that.
The films failed to carry the same tone of the television series. It's sad but true.
