That was probably going to happen even if it had remained a pair. While The Hobbit isn't long as a book, it's one of those stories where the long run time feels beneficial and necessary. When you do that over more than just a single film, it's going to drag. But I suppose the line of thinking is "why make 200 million dollars when you can make one billion?" that lead to this becoming a trilogy.

Just you wait, we'll probably get a five movie series based on The Silmarillion some day as well.
