Too many subjects
It is unethical to disturb more subjects than necessary
Some subjects at risk and they are not necessary
It is an unnecessary waste of some resources ($)

Too few subjects
A study unable to reach its objective is unethical
All subjects at risk for nothing
All resources ($) is wasted when the study is inconclusive
