Well since then, Nimoy insists he never wanted out. He talks about the trouble he had getting a call back about making ST:TSFS cause the CEO had heard he wanted out and wanted the character to die. That made the CEO afraid to let him direct the 3rd movie.

And I didn't even know there was another film coming until it was out.
It's likely TWOK would've been written without Nimoy if he turned down the death scene. Whether he was just playing Hamlet or not, only he knows, but it would be safe to say TWOK re-enthused Nimoy about "Star Trek". He apparently did have to convince Eisner of his real desire to do TSFS, but a lot of that was probably just showing he did sincerely enjoy it again since doing TWOK.
