This forced feeding and cramming in of this badly conceived and executed character was more than evident to anyone who saw the film.

3 villains for #3 was also just forced, bad and tacky.
There was the whole build-up of Curt Connors in two previous movies into the expected Lizard. WTF? Even thiose who didn't know the Lizard story were thinking "what is so special about this recurring Dr. character? Is he going to do something? It seems like he's important, but guess not."

Finishing off the Goblin story was alright in theory and worked ok in practice. Sandman was completely wasted, weak material and an utter distraction at best. Without Venom emo Parker wouldn't exist.
Venom was just a badbadbadbad idea. The entire plot was a convoluted mess designed to hightlight Venom, the villain.

Essentially instead of a tight story which engaged viewers, that movie felt and looked like it was made by Trekkian fanfilm fanboy types who were rooting and salivating for the villain instead of the hero. I would even go so far as to say that it felt as if the studio or powers that be would have been happy with the removal of Parker and Spiderman altogether.
