: At the time, they weren't planning to make a third game though, IIUC.

Nope. Check out.

There was even a plot treatment for Marathon 3 according to Matt Soell. Matt went to some efforts to find it. Something about a pyramid map and a submarine. In the end he left Bungie before finding it. Most likely it was snaffled for another game.

Yes. The final screen of M2 tied up a number of loose ends regarding the Pfhor, the S'pht , Leela, Tycho's clones, the surviving colonists. But more importantly it allowed Durandal and Mjolnir Recon number 54 the opportunity to travel to another ruined world this one orbiting a rogue star. No doubt this world had a hole though the middle.
