It actually has been a few years since I've seen TIH, only a few months since I last saw Ang's. I tend to forget about General Ross altogether concerning TIH. Nothing against William Hurt, more to do with the changes they made to the character like you say, I'm assuming to fill a role in the story L.L. (No way i can remember how to spell his name) was going for.
I guess I should have said I like to erase (MINOR) bits of TIH to make it a quasisequel in my own eyes.
The only real drastic change I can recall to the origin was Betty getting injured by Banner/Hulk.

Compare that to the actual greatest ever action scene of a comic film- Avengers Manhattan battle Hulk kills a chitauri worm with one punch. Much more like it.
Well when you put it like that...
After Avengers of course the Hulk scene is less impressive, but I think it's a far under rated these days.
