What I missed in AUJ? Ruins! Can't Post

One thing I loved about LOTR movies was the fact that PJ and his team showed us several ruined settlements in Middle-Earth. Just take a look at the ruined Eregion building which the Fellowship passes in the mountains, surroundings of the Moria gate, Amon Hen statues, stairs and other things (I completely adore these) and ruined Ithilien buildings... (I'm not talking about places like Osgiliath or Amon Sul, because they simply had to put them in the movies). So obviously, I was expecting to see some ruins in AUJ. It would be logical - the company passes through the former kingdom of Arnor on their journey and what's more, even Tolkien himself mentioned in The Hobbit that Bilbo saw ruined buildings. Therefore, I was a bit dissapointed not to see any ruins (the house which was destroyed by the trolls doesn't count for me and we've already seen Amon Sul in FOTR)... I'm still hoping that perhaps EE might include some Arnor ruins, but something tells me it won't happen :(
What are your thoughts?
