I've already explained how I felt the romance was underdeveloped. In addtion, it seemed like an unnecessary distraction from the main plot that didn't add any forward momentum to the films. In it's defense, though, the subplot did become narratively convenient once Jackson decided that some of the Dwarves would remain in Lake-town until after Smaug's attack. I also did appreciate the generational conflict between Thranduil and the younger Tauriel, something that would not have worked with Legolas (as his is at the time of the Quest of Erebor) and his father.

Tolkien did set up some animosity between the Wood-elves and the Dwarves, but it stemmed from events long before the time of Thorin Oakenshield and is not made nearly as explicit nor as bitter in the book as it becomes in the films.
