I think it's quite easy to explain - Spock was working towards reunification for a very long time.
So perhaps he was on a mission to Romulus in the wake of Khitomer that would have taken a while to complete. And that's why he wasn't in Generations.
(Apart from the fact Nimoy wasn't lured because he had nothing to do in it).
Anyway - they had the brains to dump Shatner. Wise move.
