they replace a cool looking villain with, no offense to Guy Pierce, a lesser badguy.

The Mandarin didn't die until the end of the film either and Guy Pearce's Aldrich Killian/The Mandarin is a character with very similar strengths and weaknesses compared to Liam's Ra's.

You may have not liked Killian's arc, but that doesn't mean it's a bad arc. His evolution from a nobody who hides behind the shadows to accepting being 'one' with The Mandarin echoes Stark's becoming Iron Man (both fight against their insecurities) the same way Ra's Al Ghul's vengeance echoed Batman's justice.

You may like one more of them than the other but considering the similarities, trying to present one of them as objectively right and the other as objectively wrong is hypocrisy.
