There could be a 'best of both worlds' IMO, but might be that they try to satisfy the old-schoolers at least in respect of the Romulans.
Excuse the ramble, but like for some it is the designs, for me the Romulans are my holy Trek cow. I will though entirely ignore and forget my discomfort about emotional Romulans in the theatre if Bana delivers a blow-you-away performance (which I don't doubt having seen him in Troy, Munich and Hulk).
Hmm... Why would the Romulans suppress their emotions? The way I understood it, the Romulans split off from the Vulcans due to the rejection of suppressing their emotions in favour of their passionate and violent natures. Or something.

I appreciate your input!
