i mean at least in the phantasm, andrea derails his batman quest while in nolan's batman, rachel motivates him to become batman
Rachel's involvement in Bruce's path to becoming Batman in Batman Begins is VERY different from Andrea's involvement in Bruce's path to becoming Batman in Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.
Rachel gave Bruce the foundation of his moral and ethical codes as Batman, and her conversation with Bruce in BB is the beginning of Bruce's journey to becoming Batman.
In B:MotP, Bruce was already on the path to becoming Batman, and was willing to give that up to be with Andrea.

but then again none of the batman films are tied into continuity, i would say thank god because mystery of the batwoman was horrendous.
But why not acknowledge the most popular film (or at least one of the most popular) that is meant to show the DCAU Batman's past?
