I get what you mean but then again I don't think she should be Generic beforehand or GenocideBringer afterwards

I just feel falls from grace and corruption need to be handled better.

Besides, there's not much of a fall from grace to "And then someone did some magic, and she was suddenly uber-evil just because". Imagine the human campaign from WC3, only it ends after the fourth mission when Arthas picks up Frostmourne from Kel'thuzad's body, only to immediately ride home and kill his father. You remove almost all the drama, because you've obviously removed the volition.
I don't think that's the case, there were changes but it happened mostly after her death. She switched from "tragic victim" into pretty much the same thing as her murderer.
