Yes, I've gotten that impression, too. Personally, I've always loved the mix of romance and adventure, but really do wish the 'adventure' part was emphasized more, and without reducing the heroine down to a sidekick or an empty, boy-obsessed shell. And there have definitely been times when reading a perfectly good fantasy where I go, "Really? Do we have to?" when it becomes clear that a romantic subplot is starting.
