I think they were trying to go for something poignant with TATV and sort of failed for a lot of people. As far as I was concerned there were still a lot of obvious feelings between T/T in that last episode, and I think it was supposed to be kind of a tragic ending for Trip and for them. Unfortunately, the circumstances of Trip's death were kind of dumb and the execution of the episode wasn't very good, IMHO. There are TATV threads at the rest of the board right if you want to talk about it in general. I think Reanok mentioned the books that are being released that will be continuing the story sort of like an ENT season 5. You might want to check them out. Some people like them and some people don't, but they might be worth reading if you didn't like the finale. They sort of "fix" it. There is also a lot of fanfic around. And yeah there are shipper squabbles too, but I doubt that had anything to do with what the writers chose to do. I think they thought they were writing a good story. This thread is about T/T though, so it's probably best to keep the topic on them.
