I don't know why he didn't push for more mysticism in the Bran scenes, and they kind of glossed over how significant it was for him to warg into another human (Hodor).
Lots of magical elements from the books have been cut. The showrunners prioritise tits over magic, as a means of making the show more accessible to non-fantasy fans.

I do like this show quite a bit, but it's hard for me to discuss it without launching in to a negative rant about.. just about any element.
Yes, the order of importance on the TV show is: tits > people snarking at each other > politics (mostly shown through people snarking at each other) > magic things that make for spectacular TV (dragons, wights etc.) > mysticism, backstory and overall themes.

People who only watch the show are probably wondering why the book series is called A Song of Ice and Fire. If they even know what it's called.
