The point of the sideways was: given everything you want is what you want for you what makes you truly happy in the end?
That isn't really true. Sayid didn't get what he wanted. Kate gets caught. If your point is that everyone stepped into LA X with what they wanted, then maaaaaybe that's true. But the flash became happier for some characters and not good for others. And there isn't a consistent reasons for why some characters got something approaching happiness and why others didn't.
