It also helps that its the one Nolan film where the main villain isn't seemingly running rings around Batman for most of the movie.
Yeah, I see your point. After watching TDK I was thinking mainly about the Joker, after watching TDKR I was mainly thinking about Bane and Catwoman. In BB Scarecrow didn't really stand out, and Ra's Al Ghul wasn't present during most of the movie so the movie belonged to Bruce.
