You are quite correct about the Aragorn/Arwen problem. The two of them had made their decision 60 years earlier and had worked towards making him King for the entire time since.
I guess modern film makers just can’t handle the concept of a calmly self-assured protagonist. He has to be “angsty.

That said, Jackson did a far better job than I expected anyone could do.
