It was definitely more the recreation of the ship and the factual elements of the sinking that attracted me to Titanic, more so than the love story.
But when compared to say, Pearl Harbour which tried to ape the Titanic effect, the love story is actually a masterpiece of writing in comparison.
(Never understood why they put the love story in PH. It totally wrecked it.)
