    I don't think it should have stopped because the ending of DOTM was too abrupt. Starscream, Shockwave and Megatron's deaths felt shallow.

    However, I do think that AOE and TLK should have gone in another direction. Leave the cartoon for the kiddies, and darken the live action movies.

    The kids who saw TF in 2007 are now teenagers and young adults. I myself was already an adult, but what I'm trying to say is that the saga should mature along with its audience.
    Nobody wants to hangout with a super immature friend.

    They should have stopped after the first one.

    As far as the first one goes, it did its job introducing us to the universe. I wouldn't say it failed.

    They probably should went with different directors after the first one.

    They should have either rebooted the movies or handed the reigns to another director. The series was still salvageable at that point. I don't know how they could possibly fix things after The Last Knight - the damage is already done.

    I don't think Unicron was a bad idea....

    I've thought about an absurd idea that could work.

    Maybe. I do love the direction AOE took with a post DOTM transformers film as an event as devastating as the Chicago invasion/war wouldn't just be all rainbows and unicorns just because the autobots stopped what a turncoat autobot started. Then the fact they gave the robots overall far more screentime almost as to be the main thing to separate itself from the trilogy was a well welcomed move.

    I give credit to TLK for trying, sort of, but it still fell flat on it's face when you look at the whole thing. Most of what happens in the film just feels forced. Nothing really felt natural except the autobot junkyard scene.
