I think Peter wanted to put everything in just for fun [In reply to] Can't Post

Several times throughout the commentaries, he, Philippa, and Fran comment on the things they would fix or mistakes they made. I think he even mentions that Bilbo's "Concerning Hobbits" narration was too much after the prologue, but it was fun to add anyway. Same for the Witch-king scene: Fran says something along the lines of "There's something strange about a character who shows up, threatens to do something, and then doesn't do it." When it comes to Faramir, also, they freely admit that there are probably things they'd do differently with his character if they had more time during the production. But they put the things in anyway either because they had no alternative (Faramir) or it's simply fun to include them. Shooting all three films at once had many benefits, but the most negative one was the lack of time to refine creative decisions.
