Not dissimilar both plotwise and storywise to Great Expectations, which has been filmed very successfully without the various subplots and minor characters.
It might have been expendable, but it was still information that was good to have. It would explain a lot of the relationships between the Marauders. Why it was so dastardly that Pettigrew betrayed them. Why they picked Pettigrew in the first place to defend them. While it was shown in the movies later in Snape's memories, It would have been nice to expound upon the subplot in order to have a better understanding of how things in the present came to be as they are.

Evil depends on which side you're on.
