The only reoccurring Romulan characters were Commander Sela and Commander Tomalak. Sela only had two appearances before being forgotten and Tomalak only had two appearances that were important to the story, his third appearance was just a hologram and his fourth appearance was just a cameo.
Senator Kimara Cretak was played by Megan Cole in "Image in the Sand" and "Shadows and Symbols", and Adrienne Barbeau in "Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges" when Megan Cole was unavailable. According to the PADD that Kira was reading in "Image in the Sand", Cretak was also involved in the events of the Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes "Unification I" and "Unification II".

Would you really say Kimara Cretak was a major reoccuring character the way Worf was or Dukat or Kira or Spock or Quark or 7 of 9 was. I don't think so, Kimara Cretak seemed pretty under developed compared to those other characters I mentioned. I am taking about a major reoccurring character, not some incidental character who appeared 3 times, but a character who had a huge impact on the plot of the series, maybe even someone who has character arc, like all those other characters I have mentioned. The Romulans had few reoccurring incidental characters, but not a major reoccurring character, there is a difference.
