I agree that that's the difference: BB feels more generic and studio-directed.

You could feel what Nolan was trying to do. But overall you could feel the generic dialogue, the forced love interest, all that studio executives trying to make it a superhero movie by the book. I don't feel Nolan did what he wanted until TDK.

I'd say Bruce Wayne was more the center than Batman. When Bruce finally became Batman, the editing hid him from everyone's sight.
