I'd say...
Code Geass -> the whole hiding memory thing was good. i agree that it strengthened the plot.
Tsubasa Chronicles -> yeah kinda sad... i mean, it would suck if my childhood friend forgot about me completely... and Syaoran was always with Sakura so... it's painful.
Vampire Knight -> it kinda kept the plot going.

hmm i don't think it's annoying, it's actually pretty interesting.

I don't find it cute, I dont think it's too annoying either. It makes a good plot device if done right.

It depends on how it is used. Deathnote for instance, Light forced himself to forget because he knew he would remember and . . . well it was very deep, I'll leave it at that.

However I don't like when shows use it as a cliche backdrop. For instance on romance comedy shows like where the boy or girl comes back from being away. You know the whole transfered back scenerio and thier romantic love interest has forgotten about them. It's not really amnesia like Code Geass but it ticks me off. "I've liked you for such a long time and you can't even bother to remember me" or where something important happened back in the past like on Elfen Lied but the guy forgets it, can you say awkward. Naruto and Bleach piss me off a little bit because sometimes I feel the creators give up the amnesia bit instead of creating some detailed background of the character that incoporates their personality. Instead "well I want the character to be thiss way for a little bit but it will get boring so . . . suddenly he will rememeber something important and everything will change (Dum Dum Dum). "That fake nine-tails guy that just happened in Naruto Shippunden for anyone that is keeping up" for example

Shows like Chaos Head incorporate the amnesia very well, or is it amnesia, hmmmmm? With those kind of things its leaves the mystery open

Same with Higurashi, if the puprle haired girl remembered who kept killing her every time, the show would have ended very strangely. You know she would come back and before the person could kill she would just go up and um stab her, behead her, I don't know you can use your imagination.
Amnesia is fine as long it is done creatively and not as a last resort to provide some plot twist that is anything but original
