If you think about it, though, that was kind of always the problem with the TNG movies. "All Good Things..." was such an excellent finale for TNG, both as a general summing up and also how they made it dovetail with Q's trial from "Farpoint." Even though the ending of AGT makes it clear that the crew's mission continues on, it was a great ending, and what more needed to be said? As a result, all four TNG movies had this sort of superfluous, tacked-on feeling. Yeah, the shift to movies gave them more money to play with for visual effects, sets, and extended location shoots, but I'd argue that as far as story and character go, none of them were markedly better than what we got from seven years of TV.
Hmm. You may be onto something here. TOS fans were (famously) left wanting more when the show was cancelled prematurely, so they were ecstatic when TOS (finally!) returned to the screen. But TNG had reached a perfectly satisfying conclusion--and was barely gone long enough to be missed before the TNG movies started rolling out.

Maybe that's why they (arguably) didn't quite catch on like the TOS movies did.
