Depends, I personally respect the stubbornness of Sakurai when it came to developing Smash. Honestly would have hated and lost most, if not all, interest in much of Smash if it maintained Melee with just more characters added liberally. May as well just keep rereleasing Melee HD in a Capcom fashion every new console.
But in turn, it worked like a double edged sword. Some modes got changed, others were too extreme to beat in the next installment (SSE anyone?). Personally the SSB4 single play is atrocious, and Melee adventure was better. This was a prime example of how his stubbornness detrimented the game as well improved it.
