Roles has both organizational and "reporting" functions.

You setup your Roles categories. Then as you create or import assets you assign them into those categories.

During the edit, the Timeline Index allows you to search or visually highlight the clips in your storyline BY Role - so during an edit, if you want to do something with JUST your titles - you could select the Titles Role and isolate just those assets, no matter where on the storyline they're hiding or, for example, how small they might be.

Then the big deal is during export, where if you've created roles (or sub-roles) for elements such as dialog, music, titles, etc, you can export various combinations of visuals and/or audio by choosing which roles to enable during the export and which to omit.

Hope that helps.
