I don't think the suit was the problem with Bale's mobility at all. It was the fact that we had a guy in the suit who didn't learn any full-range martial arts (Keysi doesn't count! LOL). Bale just wasn't a martial artist and I don't think Nolan felt that it was important to have Bats doing fantastical martial arts moves.
That could've been remedied by using a stunt man during the big action/fight sequences...
