Army of Two 40th Day Ending(Spoilers Fo Sho)

So the ending, I don't need to go over exactly what happens I'm sure if you're reading this you already know.  I just want to know what everbody's thoughts on it are. 
 
I'll just say this is why I don't like moral decisions at the end of a game, this and Force Unleashed are both going to suffer from it in the future.  We can all assume there will be another Army of Two game... I'm sure the devs knew that is a strong possibility, why then would they choose to end it in this way?

Since there isn't anything spoiler worthy, I'll go ahead and spoil it. I chose the ending to kill my partner and save Shanghai. Yes, I feel like they did shoot themselves in the foot.

My problem is that if you choose to: 


Did I miss something?

@Jambones: I am not too sure, but I'm replaying the game, and making different choices.

SPOILER WARNING: Click here to reveal hidden content. kill the guy holding the trigger, the end sequence doesn't really make a big deal out of it: A few shots of an already ruined Shanghai and that's about it. No, 'Oh shit. What did I just do!?" moments.Did I miss something? "

The greatest part is that Jonah doesn't even hold his finger on the trigger. He's just holding the detonator without his thumb on the button.

Not to mention the fact that the endings make no sense. For fuck's sake, they are trained mercenaries. So why they:

a) didn't try to shoot the fucker just below his nebula to assure there won't be any twitch,

b) fake one of the guys' death. They're doing it all the damn time in the game, God. That cock doesn't even check the body.

Sorry to bring this back up but I just thought about it some more and re-realized how god fucking awful it was.
