The reward for finishing all the special stages is playing as Super Sonic in any stage. Many players are going to see the true final boss not as a reward for doing the special stages, but rather as a part of the campaign that they have to get through the special stages to unlock. Many players don't even like the NiGHTS special stages to begin with, so making the final piece of the campaign more of the same might actually even be irritating to them.

As for me personally, I don't really mind the NiGHTS special stages aside from the difficulty spike at stage 6 that is gone by stage 7. I do see potential in using that style for a boss level, but I generally agree with the philosophy that you shouldn't throw a 2D boss at the end of a campaign that's 90% 3D including every single other boss.
