1. A terminator and a protector are sent back in time.
2. The terminator just misses the target allowing the protector the chance to perform their role.
3. Family and friends are killed by the terminator in an attempt to find the target.
4. The target tries to find out more about their protector.
5. The terminator tracks down the target but can't quite make the kill.
6. When all looks lost, there is a significant event, resulting in the destruction of the terminator.
7. The protector doesn't make it.
8. The target lives.
Now which film am I talking about T1 or T2

I do not recall people criticizing the movies because they deviated from the first two (except, maybe, for salvation. And even so I do not recall that.). T3 in particular tried to follow the originals almost to the word. Admittedly they do not feel like Terminator movies, but that's mostly because they lack the emotional impact (T3 even tried to be goofy at points).
T3 and TS are not liked because they are Bad. Or at the very best, watchable popcorn fare.

Also, the sequence under the bridge is way out of place in an action film...it's overly long and kills the pace of the film (there is nothing similar in T2), but it's absolutely necessary.
As for T2 putting action as a lower priority I'm not following...there are 4 or 5 separate exciting chase sequences in T2 alone, never mind the other action sequences...Sarah's breakout, Arnie's bar fight, the attack on Dyson's house, the stand off at Cyberdyne...
