Love Is A Crapshoot
Romance and love can outrank magic, technology, or even a Physical God, in influence on the progression of a story. But how it influences the story is a crapshoot.

The Good: Love acts as a Fixer Sue or Deus ex Machina, overcoming all.

The Bad: Love is an Artifact of Doom, corrupting even unambiguously good people who lack the willpower to sacrifice their relationships for their morals into a Face-Heel Turn. Murder mystery series seem to love this one.

The Ugly: Love is an Artifact of Death, bringing doom and pain to all who encounter it.

The Complicated: Love is an embodiment of the Rule of Drama, making life unnecessarily complicated.
