You could make a case for Mary in SH2 (especially the scene at the end when she's reading her letter) and Heather in SH3.
I'm sure people will roll their eyes at this because she seems to be a universally disliked little girl, but Laura is a big part of what made SH2 an emotional game for me. When James tells her that he killed Mary, her reaction almost made me cry despite the cheesy voice.
That's not fair James, she was her best friend. Poor baby.
Laura is a different case study in my mind. We understand that she and Mary were close friends, but I find something 'off' about her character. As if she isn't really 'real'. I've never been able to put my finger on it, but then, she's a very tough girl and she wasn't that hurt about James killing her. Trust me, it's not the cheesy voice throwing her 'off' either, lol. I actually think, of the SH2 voice overs, Laura, Maria and Mary were really well done with Eddie being better than the others. It would have been nice if they left those first three alone and were able to just redo the others. Just how I don't see why they felt the need to redo Heather's voice over in SH3. That was as good as the series ever got in my opinion.
