I don't see any issues with the 'love' theme and it isn't cliche at all with the premise of the movie
She's thrown into the world of man kind during one of the worse wars in history and is only ever shown how horrible people can be and how bad the world is and at some point even gave up fighting for them because of it.
When she sees Steve and his men continue to risk their lives after she says she is done fighting, and Steve shows her the love and compassion that exists in the world, it's a reason for her (someone with near no knowledge about humans) to continue fighting despite the world having wickedness in it which is exactly how the real world works, love and compassion triumphs over evil.
The theme of love isn't what bothers me, its that narration at the end from Diane where she is talking about love. Honestly would have been a much better ending without that bit;
felt just like this.

Alain's wonder women review
The movie started out amazing, I loved how they showed Diana wanting to be strong and then become strong. I didn't like the exposition by story bull**** that they pulled tho it's been used a million times. The scene where the first German soldier stuck his head through the mist a couple times was very well shot in my opinion and the fight seen on the beach was pretty entertaining to watch. The cgi was kinda cringe but I can appreciate the fact that they put their own style on it instead of just copy and pasting. As Mike pointed out the Germans speaking English was stupid af because they were alone in German high command yet for some reason speaking to each other in English. I loved the scene where Diana first discovered her power and started climbing the wall, again, very well shot. But as the movie went on they started leaning to the super hero movie checklist and added a love interest, I think it would have been amazing if Steve and Diana never actually kissed or ****ed, but they had to tie in love cause ~checklist~ I really liked when Charlie couldn't take the shot at the sniper tower I think it really made him more real to the audience. The scene where Diana was talking to Ares and holding the tank over that other lady was ****ed, she should have smashed that other lady with the tank and then fought Ares but instead she didn't crush her just because she didn't want to do what Ares was now telling her to do. The scene where Steve died saving everyone else was too cheesy ~ checklist(heroic death of main character) and come to think of it I hate the way they killed off Diana's aunt because once again it was filling the ~ checklist ~
For the Germans speaking English I imagine that goes with being able to market the movie to a younger audience who is gonna get confused reading subtitles. As for not killing the German scientist I totally agree, that woman was a ****ing psychopath, if the movie was based during WWII it wouldn't go over nearly as well for her to let some Nazi just run off.
