I can't stand recasting. it takes me out of the movie.
I haven't seen Maggie in anything else, but she was not very good in TDK.
edit: just remembered I saw Maggie in Mona Lisa Smile. she was very good, charming and likeable in it, so I don't know why that was lacking from TDK
Pretty much agreeing with you here, with most parts. I did enjoy most of Maggie's scenes but I wish Katie had returned for the reasons you listed above.
