Got it, so the main benefits will come from perks (Destiny)

In addition to what everyone else has already said, I’ll add 2 points:

• As soon as you trigger the animation, the enemy you’re finishing is “stun locked”. I’ve saved my own life several times by hitting a Hive major knight with a finisher right as he was about to bring his sword down on top of my head and kill me.

• This is extremely situational, but using finishers against exploding enemies (shanks/thrall/etc) knocks them back to a safe distance before they explode, so that can be helpful too. Bonus points if you knock the exploder backwards into a crowd of his own comrades ;)
