Okay it doesn't have to be hate finished, but what's a game you played to the end even though you weren't really crazy about it, you weren't having fun, or were just kind of meh about?
The first time I played Dishonored, I tried to get all the achievements for not being seen and not killing anyone on my first playthrough. It was a miserable experience, with so much trial and error. I didn't have fun with the abilities or exploring the levels, it was just a grind to the finish. I recently replayed it, along with the sequel, and had a great time just having fun and not stressing about the achievements.
By the time I got to the end of Control I was more than ready for it to be over. The boss fights were miserable, the checkpoints were terribly placed, and the loading times were excruciating. I didn't even really enjoy the Ashtray Maze because by that point I was tired of the game. From what I understand they patched the game with better difficulty options and checkpoints, so maybe it would be a better experience if I revisited it.
Less a "hate finish" and more a "tired finish" I've been a huge Assassin's Creed fan since the 2007 original. But Assassin's Creed Valhalla really wore out its welcome. It's beautiful, and I love the setting, and the combat is the best it's ever been. But the story and characters never really grabbed me, clearing each zone's story got repetitive, and it was the first time that the story resolution was so bonkers I had to look up an explainer afterwards because it went right over my head. I still haven't played the DLC despite buying the season pass.
How about you?
