You even acknowledge the fact that you accomplish something in the game, so your point is moot. Yes, you don't need a happy ending, but if you don't accomplish anything in the game, it's not really much of an interactive story-based game is it?
...you defeated the villain, you saved someone by sacrificing yourself, you finished your story. By YOUR own criteria, you've accomplished a lot.
I DON'T think you need to accomplish something by the end of a game for it to be a good game, but I disagree that you haven't accomplished anything by the end of this one.
