I think you're looking at it from a completely narrow point of view. You're putting the time travel, which is simply just a tool over the entire theme and narrative of the story. It's not solely about changing the future and if the future isn't changed that doesn't make the time travel pointless.

It's about what the characters learn about themselves through the process and how they grow and get a little more depth. Learning that your actions have greater consequences for the future is certainly going to resonate more and be a bigger theme with the 70's cast then anything in the future for the most part.

Once again, not to beat a dead horse, but the original comic's future timeline didn't change and it's still one of the best X-Men story's to date. It's not pointless at all because there were bigger things happening then simply just changing the future.
