I think part of it is still people not being able to disconnect TDKR Bane from B&R Bane. 'Oh good, he's not a mindless goon like in B&R! Oh wait, he has connections with other villians. He must be a goon'

It showed Bane was now just too scared to even guard Batman for 11 minutes and allowed Selina to kill him without coming across as a murderer.

Anyway, this mostly makes Bane a better, more interesting character in my book than say, The Joker.
I wouldn't say Bane was too scared, just that he wanted the satisfaction of killing Bruce. His plan originally was probably to escape with Talia and the core LOS members (Barsad, for instance) and finish off Bruce while he lies helpless and paralysed in the pit, and for Talia to reveal herself then.
