Believe me I DO understand...completely.
Because Miller wrote Batman: Year One to talk about his "First YEAR" as Batman. Batman Begins is his ascension to becoming Batman. Year One only shows 14 pages of Bruce as he comes back to Gotham, fighting some thugs, bleeding in the study and then BAM next page he's Batman. Batman Begins isn't Batman Year One, and it wasn't trying to be. I DO think it was used as a nice reference point for the character's development.
There are a lot more things wrong with the 89 Batman over the Begins Batman but as many have said, and I agree, without it we wouldn't be where we are as it is another level of Batman's growing lore over the last almost 75 years.
