Finishing Halo Reach

Is anyone else having trouble finishing Halo Reach?  I am, and not because it's hard, but more so because it's Bungie's last Halo game.  Something in my head says that once I finish this game it's all over Bungie will never make another Halo game.  Which is fine but I guess it means the end of an era.  This happens to me a lot with book series, TV shows and movies (but they have to be a set or trilogy).  It's a very weird thing and I wanted to know if anyone else experienced that same feeling?  Welcome to my craziness!

Just go finish the game and then play it again.

I have had that feeling, but I still finish stuff. It just makes me sad once I am done with it. Has happened with a few TV-shows, like Firefly and Deadwood, countless books and quite a few games. 
You should finish Reach though, as it had the best ending of all the Halo games. In my opinion.

Interesting.  I did pass on the first weekly challenge because I wanted to complete the game at a leisurely pace on normal before coming back to tackle it on Legendary - and I didn't feel like playing an early level 9 times on Heroic just for a weekly challenge.  I think I paced out my first play over nearly 2 weeks, then finished them up on Legendary a few days after that.  (I replayed some of the levels on Legendary before completing the Normal playthrough.)
 
But, I'll likely play the multiplayer for years, so I didn't really think of finishing the campaign as "The End".

@Mojo:
The end made me quite sad as it was the end of something that I have loved more than near any other thing for ten years. 
 
But I am glad that it is the last true Halo, Bungie deserves to start a new.

My little "support group" will be happy to know I did finish Halo Reach this weekend.  I loved it!  The point of my original post wasn't that I wasn't ever going to finish the game, but more when something is coming to an end that I enjoy I tend to procrastinate and draw the whole process out.   And like  LiquidPrince  pointed out I can now go back and play it again and dive into the multi-player games while waiting for Bungie's next project :)
