You take away Kirk, Spock, or McCoy you've got issues. You take away Picard or Data you move on.
I definitely think a TNG film series could have moved forward without Picard and Data, but it would have been a very different film series as neither Generations or First Contact would've turned out the same. Whether it would've been better or not is, of course, debatable.

I thought DC Comics did a bang up job of giving us good stories between The Search for Spock and The Voyage Home. Stories such as The Trouble with Bearclaw, Maggie's World and The Doomsday Bug (which brought the comics back in line with the films) were compelling even with Spock being absent from the Enterprise/Excelsior crew.
While I love those comic stories(except Bearclaw is a too over the top jerk who wouldn't have lasted a day in Starfleet) I'm not sure they're a good indication of how movies without Spock would have worked.
