This is a huge dilemma.

But according to me the ultimately choice is an architect who
- understands concerns of various stakeholders
- practical implementation approach rather than theoretical (rare breed)
- focuses on quality right from word go (hence saves costs!)
- technology passion is required but with emotional detachment. [it is this which spoils the game]
- must believe in processes and following them

I think these qualities can get any job done good enough!!!

Hope this helps,
