Well they used the same texture for both STE and GU with only some differences in color, so she couldn't have been completely deleted. There actually is a few references to her in some of the script files in the PS2 version, but no actual character files. I also noticed that the PS2 version of GU contains a few leftover files from the PSP version, an unused map called "60.zip", and all of the music for the Wii-exclusive kaiju.
I've really no idea. I'm just speculating. It just seems like in the four months GU PS2 was in development, fixing Biollante wouldn't have been difficult and it'd be one more monster on the roster - but maybe there's things I don't know. I just know Mr. Strange seemed adamant that she was completely removed up until she showed up on YouTube.
Scripts for the PS2 version of STE or GU? I noticed her referenced in STE's PS2 disc once when I was futzing around but I didn't dare mess with it. The unsued map bit is interesting.
