Hell, as long as everybody's on the same page, you can have a dozen villains, or a dozen heroes, and everything works fine. When you have multiple *storylines* trying to cross over and fit together like square pegs in round holes, THAT'S when you run into trouble. Raimi had three very different villains with three very different storylines, and tried (or was forced, more like) to cram them all together, and it just made no sense at all.
