Okay...
On PI2 with 3.5 PiTFT; installed a fresh Stretch, update, cleaned, removed office and extra's I don't need (did not touch Python) and ran your script.
did choose 3.5, did not get question console or PIXEL, just "do you want console" Did choose no, rebooted, blank TFT; however touch is working! So standard pict (Pixel Desktop) on HDMI, touch screen works, but no picture, plus X axis inverted
Re-ran script, did choose yes now. And yes console was there. HDMI dead (of course)
Did re-run script telling the script it was a 2.8 (choice1) same thing.
New image installed, updated etc, ran script, no console, HDMI mirror, got these messages
sh: 0: getcwd() failed: No such file or directory
sh: 0: getcwd() failed: No such file or directory
reboot=>same effect, no pict on TFT, touch is working, but inverted X. Do have pict from Pixel desktop on HDMI in TFT resolution.
Config.txt:

[pi0]
device_tree=bcm2708-rpi-0-w.dtb
[pi1]
device_tree=bcm2708-rpi-b-plus.dtb
[pi2]
device_tree=bcm2709-rpi-2-b.dtb
[pi2]
device_tree=bcm2710-rpi-3-b.dtb
[all]
dtparam=spi=on
dtparam=i2c1=on
dtparam=i2c_arm=on
dtoverlay=pitft35-resistive,rotate=270,speed=32000000,fps=20
# --- end adafruit-pitft-helper zo 12 nov 2017 17:09:18 CET ---
hdmi_group=2 (removed from item '...this will force vga' further up in config)
hdmi_mode=87 (removed from item '...this will force vga' further up in config)
hdmi_cvt=720 480 60 1 0 0 0
Will keep experimenting...

PS staring in console gives console on TFT; following with "sudo systemctl start lightdm" opens the desktop on HDMI

if you want PIXEL, get your pi to Boot To Desktop, run the script, and select "Mirror HDMI" - try that!

Did that as well. raspi config boot to desktop auto login. script installed, choose HDMI mirror: As I wrote, screen does work as touch screen, however inverted axes, and Pixel on HDMI. No desktop on TFT.
