I actually thought the ending was quite believable. To me, Vito realised that it was both his and Joe's actions that caused a lot of people to die or get hurt. Killing more people to save his best friend was only going to make things worse. Vito made another mistake by thinking that Joe was going to be forgiven by the Vinci family as well and he's going to live with that mistake for the rest of his life.
Sure he could have have popped one in Leo and the others in his car and went to save Joe but the bloodshed was only going to continue if he went down that path. IMHO, Vito chose the lesser of two evils.

Thats what really got me. Vito's not like that, hes a guardian angel. If someone messes with the people close to him, he gets in their face and fixes whatever problems there are. Not smartly mind you, but fixes it nontheless. So for him to leave Joe for dead, or not even put up more of a fight or complain makes me think that either 2 things happened:
1) Vito, in the end, was a cold-hearted ****.
2) The Writers ran out of stuff to write about.
Personally, I think it was the 2nd. I mean, it could've been that Vito ends up killing the Yakuza leader, punching Galente in the face saying "The only reason your not dead is because of all you did for me back in the prison. But you betrayed me. After I saved your life..." and jumped in the front seat of the car to go and save Joe. Then he and Joe end up trying to escape to somewhere while the Yakuza try to kill them. Not only would it have extended the game, but it would've been a pretty cool ending for a Mafia story.
I'm sorry, but this just seems liek a very lackluster ending. After everything that Vito had showed himself to be, he throws it all the way at the end, and thats just not Vito. But then again, don't get me started on characters that seem to have major personality changes in the middle of the story. (See Haggard and Sweetwater in Bad Company.)
