Aang lost a lot of people and had issues but at least people looked up to his position as he was seen as a hero. Korra seems to have grown up okay, but as we can already see, Amon's movement and the shift in society questions the role as the avatar, as many people will start seeing her as a "bad guy oppressor". Aang was seen as the hero, and I think one of Korra's burdens throughout some of the show will be that many people might not respect her or want the avatar to exist anymore no matter how hard she tries to do right.
I mean, how would it feel to try to do your best to fit the role you were born to be, but then a lot of people don't want you? That might start a lot of emotional complexity for Korra.
Also, I'm going to be guessing that Mako and Bolin have a pretty rough past, kinda like how Zuko had his rough past as another main character.

Except THE main character. But I agree.
It seems like LoK will be less epic on both the visual and emotional levels but I think it will fit in with the feeling of the show pretty good. And of course, it COULD turn out to be something extremely epic in the future.
