Can you really give him credit?
If you gave 150 million dollars to James Cameron and told him to make an action film with a well known franchise with huge nostalgia value, he'd do the same.
Hell, most directors could. I could concede giving credit to Bay's films as being part of the decline in cinema quality that's resulted in audience complacancy, but that's not really a good thing.
Transformers is just one of those franchises that are easy to make money from. Huge nostalgia value for people in their twenties and early thirties, whilst simultaneously being popular with children. Meanwhile, the company in charge is one of the biggest toy companies on the planet with all-invasive advertising.
