Funny, I thought that the First Contact battle was the best ever shown in a Star Trek movie. I can watch it in a loop for hours!
In my opinion, that FC battle was a cheese fest of the highest order and just an exhibition of mid 90's DS9 and TNG viewers favourite ships whizzing around using stock TV sound effects.
Then add cheesy lines like "prepare for ramming speed", and "trust me mr data (aim for that weak spot that our near invincible all conquering foes for an unexplained reason can cause immediate destruction)
The net result is that there was absolute no sense of drama or danger, no one felt really threatened on screen. Watching it again 16 years on the scene looks even more jaded.
