Even though I am a HUGE fan of Michael Bay, I still admit taht his plots need work. For the most part, I can just shut off the logic part of my brain and enjoy his movies for what they are; a marathon of action and awesome BAYSPLOSIONS! If plot's the problem, then all Michael (or one of his writers) has to do is invoke The Law Of Bruce and make the villain a Dangerously Genre Savvy Chessmaster who uses Batman Gambits that take advantage of the hero's victories and all the explosions (Hell, why not just go all the way and make the Big Bad a Magnificent Bastard?)

Actually I'd say the first Transformer was actually pretty good,the characterization was decent enough and the plot was actually straightforward rather than holed up like ROTF or simply non-existent. Even the comic relief was alright,until the sequel. And ya' know what,they aren't screened for Critics and for what he does,he does well which can't be said for other directors compared to him like Uwe Boll or Seltzer and Friedberg or in recent times M Night Shyamalan. Though Roland Emmerich is definitely a better alternative since his explosions are always better and the characterizations are actually worth something (except in Godzilla,that was just stupid)

As a huge Transformers fan, I have to say that the first film was okay, but the sequels suck. None of the Transformers ever display actual personalities, mainly because they're only onscreen for the action. Still, I've nothing against the guy personally.

Gotta be honest, I actually find the Transformers movies somewhat amusing. The ridiculous amounts of brainless action results in unintentional comedy, and the special effects can be appreciated at least.
