I just checked out those scenes and what you’ve done certainly helps a lot. Whenever watching the trilogy on BD, I always opted for the theatrical version of FOTR, because I couldn’t stand the colors of the EE, and, like you, I found the sacrifice of slightly worse detail over-all and a couple of DNRed scenes preferable over that of the entire film looking like someone spilled dark-green all over it, so this is by far the best option for me at the moment, with those problematic scenes at least not obviously looking processed. Even if the lost detail isn’t there, it at least looks pretty natural and not distracting. I’m hoping to achieve the same with Star Wars UHD.
Could you tell me a bit more about the method you used to minimize the over-sharpening? The Star Wars UHD could certainly benefit from that too.
