It doesn't have to be about one person wanting a commitment and the other doesn't (particularly since the writer seems fairly poetic overall). Maybe he (assuming this) thought he wanted to settle down; lots of military folks like the idea of stability that a relationship brings. Maybe she doesn't want to leave the hometown while he's going to move to wherever duty calls--it's not exactly a "settled" lifestyle.But, if they have other interests outside the game--not necessarily another person, either--than a game they play together isn't going to keep a romantic relationship together. It made a great starting point, it sounds, but it can't be the end point, either.Maybe he'll regret it later; that's always a risk, though. Saying he should take her back when they've realized they're better friends and they aren't compatible, though, isn't always a good plan. Especially if he's still in service and may be deployed, or move duty stations, and if she doesn't want to uproot her life to follow.After any break-up, even amicable ones, there's going to be some hurt and emotion. That's what I'm reading here. They realize the logistics of the break up, but feelings aren't logical, or easily shut off.
