The scene you are talking about, when they are moving from the woods to the meadow, I can see where that would be concerning. He does take her arm and pull her along until he just picks her up to put her on his back. But, I think, like you, I saw it more as an issue of her navigating the terrain vs forcing her hand.
But, I have to say, I'm rather surprised at your comment about the scene between Bella & Jake, when she got on the back of his motorcycle. I agree with you that Edward should not have tried to prevent her from seeing Jake. But, as you said, he had good reason. Jake constituted a threat to Bella. Were there better ways to deal with it? Absolutely. But, at the same time, what most people utterly hated about that scene was that, in that 37 seconds of footage, Melissa Rosenberg had MovieBella doing something that BookBella NEVER would have done. SM has said that repeatedly. It went way beyond Bella asserting her right to see Jake. It was Bella completely disregarding Edward's feelings and, essentially, choosing Jake over Edward, and that is not something she did or would ever do.
