Both of them represent different Powers of God. Rukmani (being incarnation of Lakshmi) is the Power through whim He bestows material prosperity and sustainence to the world.
Radha is called His Ahlaadini Shakti, through whom He bestows ecstasy of Love.
Since Krishna avatar is portrayal of the Divine Lover, His Radha Shakti is more prominent

The love of Krishna and Radha is far more superior to the relationship between Krishna and Rukmini. After all Rugmini is just a WIFE. The heights of love are not normally accessible to people in a wedlock! In a wedlock we are just playing roles given by society within in a rigid framework. Love flourishes only in freedom....freedom from society, freedom from mind, freedom from permanency/predictablity, freedom from traditions etc. No society appreciates real love....society finds love a blindness, a madness!

Because she is a part of Sri Krishna n is worshiped with Sri Krishna. We do not find Rukmani with Sri Krishna in any place of worship.It is a part of Hindu culture.
