You cant just "move the engines back where they belong...", the larger fan wont fit under the 737 wing, that's why they had to move it forward and up as well as extend the gear, which meant the thrust line changed and they needed to compensate, hence MCAS. The A-320 has actually had a similar though less publicized problem.

Drawing out/slowing down the production makes for much more expensive product. They hedged that the fix and approval would be quick. Ultimately, getting to this point and shutting down the line is going to make this even more expensive, though, you're absolutely right.

I am surprised they didn't try to slow down just a little, though.
