Giving her more screentime in X3 actually contributed to the poor quality of the film, especially from a writing/structure perspective, because it was at the cost of devoting more time to a lead character (Jean) with an actual arc and storyline. It was a complete waste of film to have her do anything in X3: they should have just given her an effects sequence and a couple lines like in the other films.
You had me until you made the highlighted portion. Maybe as an alternative, for once they could've written Storm's character... um... well?
