If you ever compare the front brakes on a car when you replace the rotors/pads and the car is primarily driven with only the driver as the occupant, the driver front rotor and pads will wear out more than the passenger side.
Now it should not be a significant amount more, but will be noticeable.
Use only quality brand name rotors. Honda, Brembo or Centric(Stop-Tech) rotors should be fine.
If you feel you are overheating your front brakes, this really depends on where and how you drive, verify that the rear brakes are working correctly.
pointed out, make sure the caliper, caliper slides are not worn or binding up causing the pads to wear unevenly per caliper.
