Now I am not happy with the Companions from a romance perspective, and I think they are rather over-the-top in terms of backstory and quirks, but I can completely agree that they work as a disparate group who have nothing in common aside from hosting a tadpole. If you are wondering why they are in your party, then yes, that's a point that Larian have addressed.
The romance now is probably just a placeholder to give us a taste in EA.

Necromancy is just recycling...
