simple

The Lord of the Rings was, for all intents and purposes, successfully adapted into three films, when there was enough canon material in there to allow for six films.

The Hobbit is one book, and shorter than any single volume in LoTR. You're right. I'm no filmmaker, but I am familiar enough with this story to be 100% certain that this simpler, linear narrative does not need the same amount of screentime as the entire LoTR trilogy in order to be adapted faithfully.
