    Actually there is: to show how fucked up the future gets, have Rouge promise that she'll stick by Shadow's side if it comes to that, and give Shadow something to meaningfully shut down Mephiles' talking.

    Also because Mephiles is a malevolent dick.

    Ignoring the fact that Omega is sentient in his own right, it seems like something he'd easily shoot down due to his whole personality...but we gotta focus on Shadow's "development".

    ...who for all we know simply told Omega that to manipulate him too.

    There was honestly no narrative purpose for Mephiles to tell E-123 Omega that.

    The cutscene plays out: Omega is shooting Mephiles relentlessly, Mephiles says "You know, you're the one who captures Shadow in the future." Omega continues shooting, then Mephiles leaves.

    Shadow and Rouge show up right as, Omega says "Shadow, I'm the one who captured you for the humans" and Shadow feels sad.

    There's no reason for any of this to happen. Then 3 cutscenes later, Shadow says the thing people like with no real lead up.

    The only other thing I'd say is cut-scene-wise, perhaps make it so all cut-scenes are the same for each story, no more of this weird arbitrary dialogue differences that were just a waste of voiceover budget and time.

    Not all of the shared cutscenes play out the same way in each story...

    Wait...does that actually apply to the Japanese version too?

    Sonic and Tails share the most amount of cutscenes and even their scenes are paced so noticeably different they couldn't have just kept them the same.

    I don't understand why they need to be the same, it doesn't hurt nothing.

    Tails doesn't have an actual place in the narrative either going by your metrics. Most of the important things happen when he's with Sonic. 

    Wouldn't have said it before, but yeah...I personally would have made his story optional along with Big and Amy's. Instead of Gamma's just going by what happens in it, he gets the Chaos Emerald from the frog (which is something actually more important to the narrative than the tail thing)...but when Tails isn't with Sonic it just becomes about growth.

    His growth is disconnected from the Chaos stuff, it's still pretty interesting on its own though.

    Without her crush on Sonic, Amy largely...has no character, outside of superficial ones like being "kind" and "sweet".

    She could be a spunky genki girl. Someone who's got significant determination to do the right thing as well as being the cheerful oblivious type, which she is.

    Being kind and sweet in the way that she used to be only meant that she had more compassion than...everyone else, but even back then she wasn't Cream. She wasn't polite or kind just as general character traits, she could be rude, take a "call to action" without needing much push (even if Sonic not helping was definitely a big push in SA1) and I'd say Sonic's so-called short temper would be given to her since one of the traits she then had would be getting angry pretty easily.
