Mirkwood Elves in DoS preview Can't Post

There is a clip in the release preview showing Tauriel, an orc, and supposedly Legolas.
I can only imagine that they endeavor to extract the purpose behind the orcs' pursuit of the Dwarves.
Once they learn the larger plot, Legolas is sent to Dale to inform the Men there and to search for the
Dwarven fugitives. That may explain why Legolas is with Bard. This is pure conjecture, but for the sake
of entertainment, do any of you think this might be anti-climactic? Will these little story lines detract
from our connection to Bilbo and the Dwarves? Part of me thinks that it is potentially burdensome to place Bilbo
and company's experience in the context of the larger picture, rather than experiencing the adventure
from the more immediate perspective of Bilbo and the Dwarves. That is, through these other characters
and storylines, we see the doom of Bilbo and co. long before they encounter it. While foreshadowing is
effective, there almost is not enough in the Hobbit for it to be a strength rather than a distraction. Do
you understand what I write? Is this a legitimate concern? thanks guys!
oh, and I do like the looks of the Master of Dale and the men there as well! They almost remind me
an eastern steppe culture Laugh.
