I've had some success with the "never finished" problem by implementing my own internal "code freezes" and thinking of my code in versions or phases. That way I don't ever have to "finish" it. I just create the next version, much like you'd do with an app. For me at least, this works because I don't feel like I have to get everything done on this version. I can decide "I'm going to freeze this version once it does X/looks like Y/is as fast as Z" and then I do it. And the things I want to do that I haven't done, I simply add to my TODOs for the next version.
