Perhaps. But some times it really is that simple. Not all villains have to be so damn complicated.

Did someone claim Nero was rational? The man's home planet was destroyed, along with the people he loved. Of course he's not going to be rational. I think something like might lead you to do some crazy things. It even happens in real life when tragedy strikes.

Nah, it doesn't get old. Its been driving entertainment for years and people seem to like it. It's all in the execution.
That's all well and good, but at the end of the day Nero was a pretty terrible villain. The whole "IT HAPPENED!" rant shows he's a bit too irrational to be taken seriously. From Pike's persepctive, the destruction of Romulus won't HAPPEN for another 130 years, so screaming at him for not thinking IT HAPPENED isn't really accomplishing anything at all.
If you're Pike, you take a guy with the power to threaten Vulcan, destroy a fleet of Federation ships and a destroy fleet of Klingon ships very seriously, even if he's not making sense and making irrational claims.

Correction: It gets old to me. TWOK, NEM, JJ. 3 of 11 movies.

Harrison sounds not motivated by wrath. Maybe for instrumental reasons, based on the trailer. Could be good. Trek films are a lot like superhero flicks, though, aren't they, as far as needing a super villain?
