Character-wise, I would agree that Rafe was originally drawn to be similar to Sami's father, the man she's always adored. But in terms of placement on the show, there have been times where Rafe got stories that would otherwise be given to Bo, especially in terms of police investigations.
On a more practical level, just look at the shift in airtime/number of episodes between PR and GG since GG's arrival in 2008. PR's dropped while GG's rose dramatically and overtook PR's totals. Yes, EJ/JS is up there, too. But he's the so-called villain. When it comes to the white-hat. hot-headed hero, PR has had to cede airtime and stories almost completely to GG. At least MarDar had Bope working together again to solve a mystery (Alice's letters), but that went nowhere.
Meanwhile, JT's Roman was put on the backburner and has remained there for years. His fate hasn't been affected by the appearance of Rafe in the same way as Bo's has.
