I don't know if it works for you, but 'cat'ing together both parts of 
the Lord of the Rings movies worked quite well for me (as it did for the 
2Disc Spartacus, Once upon a time in America and The Godfather Pt.2, too.

First, dump all movies:

mplayer dvd://1 -dumpstream -dumpfile 1.vob
mplayer dvd://2 -dumpstream -dumpfile 2.vob
mplayer dvd://3 -dumpstream -dumpfile 3.vob

then cat them all together:

cat 1.vob 2.vob 3.vob > movie.vob

Plays fairly well (with no flicker) for the aforementioned DVDs, but you 
have to see for yourself.
