I agree. Suguha's role in the story feels kind of tacked on and doesn't really serve any purpose relative to the rest of the plot. It's just a sidestory, pure and simple. You could probably cut it out without changing anything else about the series. So if it doesn't stand on its own, there's no reason for it to be there. And maybe I'm just a heartless robot but I don't feel much sympathy for her at all.

What makes it even worse (to me), is that she's basically the perfect opportunity to develop the notion that SAO survivors have strained relationships with their families because of the lost time, but that quickly gets overshadowed by her "broken heart". I feel like making her a doomed love interest is a waste of her character.
