Why did we need to see the Losties' lives in the Alt/Limbo?

Yes I get that the Alt was this limbo place where the Losties went after they died, etc. They created this life where their deepest wishes unfolded, fine. What I cant seem to make the connection with is WHY did we need to see this? I mean, we've spent half of season 6 watching this but was the only reason that they wanted to show us these characters are forever bound to each other even after death? I'm ok with that but isnt half a season a little...err too much?

I really WANT to like the end, so those of you who did find it perfect please help me out here. Am I missing something and not looking at it the right way?
