I'm not saying jealousy was Bane's sole motive. In fact I don't think it was a motive at all. I think he was doing it out of loyalty and love for Talia, just like he did all those years ago risking his life in the pit just to protect her when she was a child.
If done right, jealousy is not a pathetic motive to have. I would have been fine if Bane was jealous of Bruce of being the "favorite" while Bane was kicked out of the League for saving Ra's al Ghul's daughter and while we both agree jealousy didn't play a part, I would have been fine if this was played out in TDKR.
But...jealousy can be written right. Look at TSSM for example. I thought Eddie's jealousy matched his anger correctly.
