Agreed, if he had been in the movie more, I would have added him to list of Optimus, Bumblebee, Jazz and Jetfire as my favourites.
Early in the movie it seemed Sideswipe was the new 2nd in command as well, he was the last to be summoned by NEST before Optimus and when he said "Clear a path!" everyone did. He was also right behind Optimus going into the autobot hangar as well.
Its a shame they didnt expand on all of this.
