square foot gardening and companion planting

I'm putting in a vegetable garden and have been reading a lot of different blogs here and there about companion planting and square foot gardening.

I was wondering how much difference have you noticed companion planting makes? I've been trying the best I can so far, with the info I've found, but am worried I will accidentally put two plants together that are not "friends."

I like the concept of square foot gardening, but I just don't really have the plant selection to group plants by square foot every square foot. I've been trying to do 2x2 beds next to companion plants. Will that work? Is it worth it?

And one last question, has anyone had any luck getting pole beans to grow up cornstalks?
