Yes, the second trilogy is lovely and has some lovely incisive writing and observations. I agree that it was good to see Ged as living an ordinary life -- I actually particularly liked The Other Wind in this regard, seeing Ged through Alder's eyes... at one point the narrative calls him an "old man," and that just surprised me! But of course, that's how Alder would see him, not as Archmage or anything...

Re your second point, I think The Other Wind suffered for me in that I read it very soon after The Amber Spyglass, which is very similar thematically. I imagine it was just bad luck both authors had a similar thought process, but it's always colored my opinion of that plot a little.

(Thank you for commenting! I had a Lot of Thoughts about these books and it's nice to be able to talk about it :) )
