Well the film does have a fair bit of extra material, some of it - like Azog's grudge - invented whole cloth for the movie.
I'm aware of that, but I don't think it should be cut because it only added to the movie. Without the Azog subplot the movie would basically just be a series of vignettes with no real antagonist.
I feel like Azog could have been a better villain though. He does some vicious things, but he's really just being an orc. I don't feel like he's especially more evil than any of the other antagonists. Maybe if they explained why he hated the line of Durin so much or gave him more scenes, he could have been stronger.
