Couldn't agree more. Alfred/Bruce FTW.

Selina was just some tart in a tight suit, who stole his dead mother's jewelry, despised him entirely, left Bruce to die at the hands of Bane, hardly shared any scenes with him, and despite all of this, for some reason, at the end of the movie she asks him to "runaway with her" and in the end, we're led to believe they get married and live happily ever after. (There's something to add to the "Unintentionally funny Moments" thread..)
Hathaway was great as Catwoman but for me, the "romance" felt undone. Like all of your examples illustrate. The character simply wasn't fleshed out enough and written enough as a love interest to really believe that she's the one who would end up living happily after with Bruce Wayne.
The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long.
