At this point one has to face facts; the human element isn't ever going to go away. With that in mind, it's more practical to hope for some decent characterization and perhaps have the humans' story center around the TF's instead of the other way around.
TF 2007 and ROTF was all about Sam and his life, with the TF's doing their thing in the background. The humans and TF's seem to be forced together. DOTM, however, had a more natural connection between the human plot and the TF plot. Both sides intertwine, and neither is given more importance than the other. IMO, the main TF's in DOTM were also given more characterization than their first two movies put together.
While the plot itself has its own flaws and problems, it's a step in the right direction.
