That to me, was such a monumental waste. After years of ignominy in crap modes, finally, you see Megatron looking really good, really cool. The set up is so perfect, and you think YES! Megatron looking badass, Western bad ass. My mind was immediately fantasizing Megs-Prime showdown, a la Prime vs Motormaster, G1 style.
What a waste.

Again a wasted set up. You see Shockwave making a grand entrance, Prime and he acknowledging each other like there's been a vendetta that's going to get closure, and then.... nothing!

It seems like after millions of years of war he would've just resorted to tearing the object out of his eye. He has shown he repairs pretty easily (he just stuck his severed arm back on in ROTF). Rather than dying by Sam's hand, it could be Ratchet! Why? Well, Ratchet doesn't get to do a lot in the movies, ever. This would've given him a chance to be awesome for once.
That part was just ridiculous. Just one eye sent him whining like a stuck pig? He should have been taken out by an Autobot. And yes I agree, preferably someone who was relatively obscure, like Ratchet, that you think would have no chance with Starscream, he's gonna die, then boom! Kinda like The Expendables, where you think that Steve Austin's gonna buy it at Stallone's hands, and maybe Statham's, and when he fights Randy you think maybe Randy's going to get killed. But surprise! It's Randy that kills him.

Enough has been said about the ending and how ridiculous it is
