Look, for instance, at an old fairy tale: Red Riding Hood. Red and her mother love Grandma and prepare a gift basket with her in mind. Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White are great examples of stories that feature and/or revolve around romantic love.
Even in a story about man against nature there is a love element: self-preservation or self-love motivates survival. Sometimes the love of family draws someone who is lost to fight all odds in order to return home again.
I challenge you to think of a single story, or perhaps I should say a single popular and well liked story, that completely leaves out love of any sort, including brotherly love or the bond of friendship.
