It goes both ways too actually. I hate the idea that TDKR gets called the most "comic-booky" of Nolan's trilogy and I hate when people say TDK isn't a CBM, lol. It sort of kinda flows hand in hand with the idea that TDKR holds all of these flaws and yet no one can look at TDK's flaws, lol.

I've covered this multiple times already so I won't get into it again.

This is all just my opinion, of course.
Your opinion and I can respect it, but I feel like you're overlooking that this take fits Nolan's Batman to a T, so saying it goes against anything that Batman would do, while it makes sense by looking at the comics Batman, or Batman from Batman:TAS, it's fine with Nolan's take of the character. It might have seem different from the view of Batman Begins, but we got hints of Bruce wanting to create a symbol and then moving on from Batman in TDK. While it's rattled with the idea that Bruce needs Batman during TDKR, he still had to move on to fulfill the idea that was continued in the two previous films.
