Defect/Enhancement Number
There are a lot of items with "Include in Sitemap" option enabled. During the Sitemap generation, Sitefinity goes through each item and checks if that item is placed on a page in order to generate the link for the detailed view of the item.
Disable the "Include in Sitemap" option in case there is no need to include them in the generated sitemap, as this will speed up the Sitemap generation.

The following code snippet disables the "Include in Sitemap" option for dynamic items of specific dynamic content type:
var items = dynamicModuleManager.GetDataItems(itemType).Where(i => !i.IncludeInSitemap);
foreach (var item in items)
item.IncludeInSitemap = false;
