"Made him" is probably a bad choice of words. It was actually more pressure put on by his previous editors that made Toriyama change the antagonists so many times.
OK then, pressure.

IMO the series went on too long. Perhaps it could expand some things is it were simply a manga or other kind of book, but not as an anime. Good God, not as an anime. But if there were some things they could have touched up on, I would like to see more of the Saiyans. And not just the nonsense they retconned to match Goku's quirks. I would have liked to see a slice-of-life episode for everyone, too. It would have fit in nicely in the Saiyaman or Pre-Cell Saga.

IMO, the Garlic Jr. saga could've been a movie.
