You appear to have such a narrow minded view of things. That and I believe you allow your prejudice and your own personal disapproval of Burton's artistic choices cloud your judgment.
Batman's villains have always metaphorically symbolized a shade of Batman himself, and Burton's films are no different. Batman "created" Joker just as Jack "created" Batman. That's what defines their relationship in these movies. That's why their destines are intertwined.
