Where Bane and Talia went more extreme was how slowly they dragged out their plan and took over the city entirely. Simply destroying it wasn't enough for them. They wanted to actually punish Gotham and let the world watch helplessly.
Alfred was right all along. Bane was
too extreme for Ra's Al Ghul.
