As she was utilized in the OXT, Rogue was our 'everyman' character in two of the three films, which was appropriate given that there wasn't anyone else in the first or third films who could fill that role (although Angel does sort of fill the role along with Rogue in TLS). The only reason she wasn't the 'everyman' in all 3 films is that Nightcrawler filled the role in X2.
I have no problems with changes to a character as long as they improve on the character. The changes to Rogue were not improvements.
