Yes, I think Avatar in general is a more intimate and personal movie.

Even taking the destruction of Alderaan. I didn't feel any real loss when Alderaan was destroyed because I had never seen the planet, never met it's people, etc.

But when Hometree was destroyed, it was much more personal because we knew the Na'vi and understood them. So even though Hometree resulted in only a few dozen deaths and a few hundered homeless compared to billions dead on Alderaan (and a sad Princess), the loss of Hometree was more significant.
