Note: The holodeck scene in First Contact was pretty pointless too: but it was at least a nice Dixon Hill homage for TNG fans to enjoy.
I don't think so. It showed Picard's full rage and that he really had big issues with the Borg that needed to be solved, and he got the neural something chip to get to know their next move, and well then it had both the purpose of a homage for TNG fans and an introduction for new audience that they have holodecks in the 24th century. Not pointless at all.
Although I think his rage is only brimming at the point. The scene where he 'breaks his little ships' I think is where it finally boils over and it's made clear Picard has..had....enough of...YOU.
