Re: Most Upsetting Bond Movie Deaths (SPOILERS)

That and Xenia was being paid and would be paid very handsomely by the sprawling Janus crime syndicate, especially when it was aiming to steal billions from England's bank mainframes, so why would a mercenary like Xenia give two craps about trumped up historical grievances?

One that I don't think has yet been mentioned is Felix Leiter's wife Della from License to Kill.

I wouldn't necessarily say it's upsetting (although it really sucks that she dies on her wedding day), because we didn't really ever get to know her as a character. She dies at the beginning of the film, we don't see Felix again until the end of the movie, and even then he doesn't seem too upset that she's dead (probably because he's just happy to be alive, minus a few limbs).

We never see Leiter again in the classic Bond films, so we never get to see him with his appendages. It'd be nice if they introduced this aspect of his character in the re-incarnation.

I don't know if this one counts as an upsetting death, but in Never Say Never Again, doesn't bumbling boob Nigel Small-Fawcett (Rowan Atkinson) get killed?
No. Bond's lady agent friend, however, does get killed.

Della was a bit of a cypher, even if her implied sexual abuse followed by her murder was very unavoidably sad in of itself, which is why her death did not stick in my head as much as the so many other women and male sidekicks that got killed who were fleshed out more.

The weird death of the pompous Saunders by sabotaged sheet glass doors got to me more.

^In both cases a lot of it comes down to Dalton's reaction, especially over Saunders, the look in his eyes when he pops the balloon... Craig may be harder, and colder, but if there's one 007 In wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of it's Dalton.

That certainly became apparent in License to Kill where he burned his bridges with MI6 to get back at Della's killers (a sprawling, powerful crime syndicate).
