LOL, this is pretty much why. The hero must overcome all obstacles that stand in his way. He must survive in the end (at least in most action/sci-fi/fantasy/superhero movies). If anyone must be killed of it will either be a sidekick, a minor character with some kind of red on them or at times it would be his love interest. If he must die, then the love interest must live. Of course, there are times when both will die (Romeo and Juliet) or the Hero dies (Hamlet, King Lear, etc).

In the kind of movie that Avatar is, it would make sense for Jake to survive. There wouldn't be much of a story without him.
