Update: According to The Magic Box (July 18, 2010), Sakaguchi has responded, saying his comments have been misconstrued. Here are his actual comments:

Emotionally it feels like this is my last work, while pouring everything I have gotten into this project. Never regret, but now "I’m enjoying"; furthermore, aiming towards completion. The sense of "This is it" relaxes my shoulders, its pleasant feeling to conduct an orchestra by the sense of my intuition.
