Deathstrike was at least given some soul, in the way she reacted to being pumped full of metal and the lingering focus on her clanking to the bottom of the tank. There was an air of something tragic about it, even if brief.
As for Storm, well yes she has been just a special effects provider for most of the films. I don't know why she is so hard to grasp. We need to see a story where Xavier goes to Egypt or Kenya to battle the Shadow King, who has taken possession of Storm (like he did in Wolverine and the X-Men cartoon). Then we get an origin for Storm, characterisation for Storm, some full-on displays of her power as she goes out of control under Shadow King's influence, and chance for Xavier to lose his hair!
