He didn't "add" Arwen...

he put her story from the appendices into the story proper...he also took a name created by Tolkien, "Gothmog", and used it for the Orc Lieutenant of the Witch-King, and created the "Madril" Ranger character in Gondor and the "Morwyn" character in Rohan who had all of three minutes of screen-time, as well as the Orc "Sharku" who again had about three lines.

BTW, "Irolas" in Minas Tirith was supposedly going to be Beregond from the book, but he was so different from his literally incarnation that PJ make him a "new" character, again based on a name Tolkien created, ("Irolas" instead of "Iorlas").

I would rather be watching Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" and Ridley Scott's "Prometheus"...it's going to be a long few years.
