Another one I thought of - crap endings. "I played all the way through the game for THAT?"

FF8 is actually one of the lesser evils for that, as with a bit of effort you can get Diablos (and therefore Enc-None) as soon as you get the cursed lamp when starting your first SeeD mission. Unlike various others where you either get it right at the end of the game if you grind for it, or not at all.
FF10's Mount Gagazet, however, is enough to make me want to punch the TV through the wall.
