I find it hard to imagine a situation in the context of applied
research with real data where effect sizes would not be important. If
the importance of inspecting effect sizes (and related stuff like the
form of the effect etc.) would depend on a research question, then
perhaps there is something wrong with the research question itself.
You can always find 'significant' effects which are meaningless in
practice. It is probably also problematic to focus on what reviewers
may or may not want to see. Such issues are discussed in this
interesting article from Gerd Gigerenzer:
