I think leaving out S.P.E.W. is a huge part of why movie watchers don't ship Romione. That moment when Ron wanted to save the house elves because he knew how much Hermione cared about them was PRICELESS. It's a tragedy that they cut that. Also, keeping S.P.E.W. in would have shown some of Hermione's naivete, making her more human and relatable.
