Yes, its role in keeping the sandwich together is major, but it is literally a supporting role; the bread should be gracious enough to take second billing to the inner ingredients. When the taste of the bread is too prominent (as with many sourdoughs that would be lovely on their own but overpowering in a sandwich), or the texture is too harsh, the sandwich is doomed. So when conceptualizing a sandwich, think from the inside out and let the filling ingredients dictate the choice of bread, based not only on what will best enhance their flavors but also what will work technically and practically.
