Yeah, well, depends.

If you're have Optane or StoreMI, congrats. Your HDD can be accelerated to match that of your SSD.

Otherwise, you're right.

Yes. Things like photos you can leave on a hdd, or backups, storage, and smaller/older games will run fine off a hdd. But a larger/newer game you have to wait for a whole level to load will run faster on a ssd. I have some old games that are <1gb folder and they load fast on the hdd because they are so small. OS on a ssd will boot much faster, load applications much faster.
