I know what you mean. But: I had no problem with Ra's being Bruce's mentor as well. I thought it was an interesting take on the Ra's character and the relationship of them both.
But I had a huge problem withe Pre-Joker killing the Waynes. In my eyes that weakened the Batman - Joker relationship.
So, where do I draw the line? Hard to tell. The Ra's story felt right for me, the B89-Joker being the Waynes' murderer not.
