For the Smaug thing, read comment 314.
Beorn was different, but they couldn't just give him the part in the book... it would be so minor that (despite his part in the Battle of Five Armies) he could've been cut out like Tom Bombadil was, and several people were annoyed by that and complained (so they would rather upgrade the character than cut him and hear the complaints about that again).
Same with Radagast, except the whole smoking and shrooms thing annoyed me as well, but I can deal with it.
The inclusion of characters were more than only fanservice, several of them were eager to reprise their role that was either their last or first major role (Elijah Wood, Ian Holm, Orlando Bloom, and to a point Christopher Lee) and meet old friends (and make new ones).
I know Azog was dead before hand, but that is no major concern for me to call Jackson a money grabber, he was including history to get the other books known and read.
THe love triangle was an annoyance to me as well, but again not so much as to throw me from watching the movies or calling him a moneygrabber.
AND THIS MIGHT BE THE MOST IMPORTANT PART
Jackson did not want to make the Hobbit in the first place, he was pressured into it and the public cried for him to do it... it does not make him a money-grabber if he was begged for years by millions to do it, Jackson was a huge Tolkien fan himself, but as good a director as he is, he knows that he could not follow the book word for word and achieve the same effect as he had with LotR... plus he was limited to doing a movie from a childrens book that would be watched by several generations of Tolkien fans. Otherwise he would only have made a live-action version of the animated Hobbit movie and it would have pissed of more people.
Any true fan of Tolkien would be content with what has been made, Rant Over
TL;DR for all its mistakes the Hobbit was not just a money-grabbing opportunity and Jackson did the best he could with given circumstances.
