I don't know if you saw this anywhere, but in an interview after the finale came out, Bryke actually told us that one of the writers had storyboarded a sequence involving Zuko seeing his mother again that wa sgoing to go in the final episode, but Mike told him to cut it. It was not explained why they removed it, but when asked whether it would be resolved, Mike said "hopefully someday".

I consider the story of Iroh's trip to the spirit world to be a bit of unexplored character backstory, which is cool but they aren't really under any obligation to explore it. The fate of Ursa, on the other hand, is a major unresolved plot thread. If there is never a sequel, I would consider leaving it out bad storytelling. But I try not to get my hopes up too far for a sequel to ever actually come around. I kind of wonder whether they are trying to get Nick to sign onto something like a one-shot movie.... I doubt they are going to make more seasons of the show, but animated TV movies I could definitely imagine.

Yeah, I was aware of that statement. Check my comment to spin1978 above.

I agree that if they never do anything more to answer the question of what happened to Ursa, it would seem like a flaw in an otherwise well-crafted story.
