And as far as I'm concerned, the BR Bruce/Selina relationship worked mainly because of the actors playing them. From a story standpoint, Selina ended up being as wrong for Bruce as Vicki was. I'll just leave it at that because I really don't want to get into a long winded debate about it.
If you mean his relationships, in whatever forms, with other male characters? Sure. The bromance between Bruce and Alfred. The parentalistic relationships with the various Robins. His relationship with Alfred. And of course the ones he has with certain villains: namely Two-Face, Ra's Al Ghul and most especially the Joker.

However love interests? Only TAS did a good job with the (admittedly creepy concept) of Barbara Gordon being a different take. But Vicky Vale, Julie Madison, Rachel Dawes and Silver St. Cloud, among others, are as dull as wallpaper. That is why no one ever remembers their names like Lois Lane, Gwen Stacy, Mary Jane Watson, etc.

But Selina Kyle? That one sticks for a reason.

With that said, I agree the character should be given a rest before used again.
