I think there has always been enough time spent on the "bad guys". I'm sure they will be as careful developing the bad characters now as they were in LOTR. After all, Tolkien wrote a story about the good guys, the heroes, I don't want the script writers to turn it into an epic story of the evil. In the books there are descriptions and some hints of the life of the bad guys but the time Tolkien spent developing them is still less than the time h espent on the good guys. I expect the same from the script writers. I find the job they did for LOTR absolutely great - the bad guys were very realistic.
One thing I don't want is the flow of the book to be interrupted by newly invented moments - either about the good or the bad guys. So, for me following the book and its content will be quite enough. As about F2 - I don't see any need for the team to spend more time on developing bad guys except those who will be new characters for the viewer. I don't want to watch the same descriptions about orcs, goblins, balrogs or anyone else again and again. Moria was also described already. may be they can make comments on it as it will be at earlier time but it shouldn't be extensive. Dol Guldur is another story - there they can let their imagination fly Cool
As about developing places, kingdoms, keeps - I think there is no doubt PJ and GDT will create another fantastic world, both good and bad.
