Debating a few lines of dialogue is not the same as writing the whole ending.

In that specific example I think it was primarily because they debated having the IM as a final boss fight, but ultimately decided it would be too "gamey" (after all, you don't want icky game mechanics getting in the way of your glorious cinematic artistry). Plus I'm pretty sure when you have a guy like Martin Sheen in the booth, you want to make sure you have everything finalised so you don't have to call him back to re-record anything. I doubt he comes cheap.

Of course. If they don't come out and shoot it down it allows people to remain in denial. People in denial are still invested in the franchise, so you can potentially sell them DLC and other product.
