Personally I like the mix to advance, but I took it too far, and now have 14 merit badges, 5 of which are eagle, and I am not even first class yet.

?ABSOLUTELY NOT. If do only non-requireds, you can't advance. If you do only requireds, Scouts lose out on fun and exploring their interests, which is one of the key goals of the MB program. A mix is the best way to go.
