Yes, that's why I said 'partial victory'. [In reply to] Can't Post

Sauron flees nonetheless, so for the Mirkwood Elves and those threatened by Dol Guldur (Lorien, Rivendell), this is a relief. And since Gandalf says in the FotR movie that 'The Ring has awoken, it's heard its master's call' and that 'his orcs are multiplying', it sounds as if quite a few of Sauron's servants died in the battle which according to JRRT was taxing for the White Council.
Also, unlike for you, for me a victory, albeit with Sauron on the run and someone saying something along the lines of 'He will yet return, but for now, the danger is gone', would work much better than disturbing images of Sauron refurnishing the Dark Tower. I'm a viewer who likes their movie with a happyend of a sort. :)

"A journalist once asked me what I would like my epitaph to be and I said I think I would like it to be 'He did very little harm'. And that's not easy. Most people seem to me to do a great deal of harm. If I could be remembered as having done very little, that would suit me." ~ Paul Eddington
