Jackson has gone way too far.
It's a childrens' book.

Agreed. There simply isn't enough material in The Hobbit to warrant a movie trilogy. I get that he wants to link The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings...but he's bastardized the story and it's no where near as good as the original material.
Tauriel wasn't even a Tokien character, she was created by Peter Jackson. Legolas, Galadriel, Radagast the Brown and even Sauron didn't appear in the original story. And why does Thorin Oakenshield look more like a Dunadain Ranger than an actual Dwarf? But I digress...I think it would've been better as a one & done standalone movie. If he wants another trilogy then there's always the Silmarilion (as someone mentioned above).
Bonus question for all you Tolkien geeks. There were five wizards in Middle Earth. (Six if you count Sauron). They were Gandalf the Grey, Saruman the White, Radagast the Brown...but who were the other two?
