The contribution to the storyline of crossovers in superhero television shows

Analyze the contribution to the storyline of the crossover episodes of superhero television shows. In particular, Arrow, The Flash, and Constantine have had crossover episodes. Do these contribute to the story in a meaningful way? Are they forced, making the episodes feel like a commercial for another show? Another example related to this might be when Superman makes "appearances" on Supergirl.
