Can this entry be rewritten in a tone that does NOT ooze "I hate this couple so I'll put them here, weeeeeh" vibes? Some parts are so damn whiny.

"Willie Scott in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Not only do she and Indy (along with the audience) seem to actively loathe each other, there is absolutely no plot reason for her to even exist in the movie."

The only definite point in the film where she had any influence was when Indy comes in her room looking for intruders and finds the secret passage. That could have been accomplished with just about any other type of good or neutral aligned character ever.

And the scene with the pit, but see above 'just about any character ever'.

There's a story that they were going to try this trope with the movie of The Hunt for Red October, but Tom Clancy told them to shove it.

What'd the difference between a romance sidequest and a token romance? E.g. Zevran's romance from Dragon Age; it's quite substantial, does it still count as a token romance?

Romance Sidequest is, well, romance sidequest. In other words a sidequest to hook up with someone. Token Romance is romance that has no importance to the plot. Answering your second question: no. If it's significantly plot-relevante it doesn't belong here.

I think "Token Romance *Subplot*" might be the best title. I clicked on it expecting it to be about a token women who is a token romantic interest.

It says "Token Romance" not "Romance with Token"
