After looking through the end discussion topic I was surprised that no one seemed disappointed by the end.
I enjoyed the story itself very much but was disappointed that there weren't multiple endings. I figured the developers were waiting till the last episode to let the stories diverge; it seemed like your final party makeup was the beginning of that. Playing through the game, I got the impression that all your choices would affect whether Clem survived the last chapter or not. The game says multiple times "xxxx will remember that". But in the end, the player doesn't have any effect on Clem's fate, regardless of how she feels about you.
Also, when Ben died in episode 5 (for me) I realized the world is like the Final Destination movies. You can never escape death.
