Question about the 3D (any framerate) versions if anyone could answer? Can't Post

I hope you understand when I say that green-screened scenes in movies typically feel claustrophobic. You can somehow sense that characters are on a set, despite seeing a huge vista behind them. The Hobbit's battle sequences, for instance feel very tight and there's quite a difference when we go from a CGI environment to a real-life one. Everything appears to open-up a lot more and feel more natural and wide.

Some good examples are Captain America or Sky Captain and the world of Tomorrow, (both have excessive use of green-screen) where you can have a huge wide-shot of an open area, but somehow it just feels like a contained space.

Providing you understand what I mean by this? My question is: Does the added depth of 3D help to open up this claustrophobia? Does the 3D version feel "bigger" if you like? Has anyone noticed this problem, or is it just a me thing?
