They have a real partnership now and their adoration for each other is based on who they actually are and not God-like hero and lovesick girl that they've have been portrayed as for decades.
Their decision to go against what's been done before is the opposite of lazy.
I have no problem with the decision, I have no problem with changing a few things when you have to give your version of a story. The execution in the other hand is so lazy and lackluster that it diminished the impact of the changes they made. Had it been handled better I would have no problem with it at all.
