Well, instead of ridges which were just a cosmetic thing we now have tattoos which are not just superficial but make the Romulans stereotypical villains. You could have missed half the film, be totally wasted and still get instantly that the folks with the bald heads and tattoos are the bad guys.
Now compare this to the very first appearance of the Romulans which did not villify them and was rather about potential confusions between ally and enemy. They look like Vulcans so whom can we trust?
