The burning of King's Landing would make more sense if King's Landing was ruled by Aegon and loved by the people, while Dany who lost almost everything and everyone she cared about saving the world is despised and rejected. Dorne, Varys' betrayal, Dany's heel turn... all this things make SO much more sense with Aegon in the picture.
You understand that adding 2-3 seasons was totally nonviable, right? Setting aside all the practical concerns, you're essentially saying "re-writing the entire second half of the show" would have fixed all the problems.

I mean, sure, maybe. But that's not exactly useful here.
