Give the action of the story has peaks and valleys, depending on the genre. Raise the action to a fevered pitch, then let it fall off to give the reader/viewer a rest. Then build it up to a frenzy once again, only to repeat the cycle. Without the valleys the peaks simply become plateaus- -wide, boring, flat, and very annoying. The valleys give relief to the peaks, no pun intended.
