I believe it was borticus who pretty much stated this directly on the forums.

If they hadn't left it out, almost everyone would have chosen them.

It has nothing do with them caring about the EC value of these.
I'm not sure what Borticus has said on the forum, but I believe it was Geko in a podcast interview who said outright that adding field generators to the game in the first place was a mistake and he wished he could remove them completely.

Then again LoR added a Romulan mission with a green field gen as a reward, so STO's left hand doesn't always know what the right is doing.
