NU-Trek is already facing accusation of sexism by some critics, do we really need to see Kirk in bed with 2 female Klingons next?
Some would call that bad writing. I'd call it taking an easy way out to fill screen time.
That's one of my complaints with the current trend of 2-plus hour movies. It doesn't take two hours to tell a good story. A lot of what ends up onscreen is just unnecessary filler.
IMO, YMMV, yeah.
