They do, it's only a matter of how many you want. As has been said before, the main cast of people to care about isn't just autobots.

It's like saying all the people we care about in xmen(central cast) are fine but the film would be so much better if we care about even more, all the people involved in the action. The truth being all xmen films are guilty of having autobots(see that last one in particular). It's about the central ones. It's not like if Bee died in any one of these movies no one would care. Any film could be improved with more investment in more people but a films failure in this regard isn't measured by the quantity.

I was also surprised to find out lots of people cared about iron hide.

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 45 years ago into the Lantern core, flight testing in the midst of the Viet war. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
