What was the purpose of the Tim/Cassie pairing? It had no development in the show and had no impact on the story whatsoever. The only thing they appeared to have in common was that both of their characters were horribly underused and we have no idea about either of their origins. At least we got to see Cassie's interaction with WW, we never saw Tim and Batman's relationship. And instead of showing how they got together, we just randomly see them holding hands and then cut to yet another Miss Martian/Superboy moment...
The purpose was to show that life goes on and that things happen off-screen. We couldn't give every character equal time. (Though I'm not sure I'd agree that they were 'horribly underused'.) But we could show glimpses of what was going on with them.
