ToMG is not supposed to be about Godzilla. And it doesn't need to be about Godzilla in order to be good.
Well, if I'm not mistaken ToMG is part of a little something called the Godzilla Series, not to mention that Godzilla's appearance is completely arbitrary and shoehorned in, much like in Megalon and Sea Monster. Godzilla is completely ignored for most of the movie (not counting the opening credits) and when he appears on the aliens' radar, its like "oh yeah, Godzilla is in this movie too".
That is true. Godzilla was ignored for most of the film, and he was basically just shoehorned in. But you still didn't explain to me why it's BAD for Godzilla to only have a minor role/appearance in a movie.
Just because Godzilla is shoehorned into a movie or makes a small appearance in a movie does not automatically mean that the movie itself is bad. Invasion of Astro Monster/Godzilla vs Monster Zero featured Godzilla for only a few minutes, but the movie itself is still considered great by many fans. Destroy All Monsters was more like a Japanese monster mash rather than a true Godzilla-centric film, and yet fans praise, love, and overrate it to death as one of the greatest Godzilla films ever.
