Then the final encounter should have been obviously at the expo, with Hammer introducing the drones and Vanko and then Vanko being the one that starts destroying the Expo and Tony getting there just in time to save the day.
I didn't have a problem with the inclusion of War Machine, but I do agree that they should've done something along the lines of what your describing here with Whiplash. The whole party scene as it is in the actual film has always been a weak point of IM2, IMO.
