It does, and that clip of the unfinished mission feels like exactly how the game should have ended on a high note. So it feels a little empty. But the game still delivered a lot.
I'm assuming here, but I think Kojima and co. were just taking too much time and money that they got forced to release whatever they had by September. That missing mission seems like a perfect climax; and I'd guess we would've gotten other, less important missions in place of all the hard-mode repeat ones, and probably more story about Snake going more demonic.
