I think its a lack of talent in the industry, as in any industry. You have a handfull of talented people, and the rest are average/poor. The problem is consumer expectations are so high these days, average doesnt cut it. I think thats why Blizzard hired Tigole long ago. They knew there were only EQ devs that had knew how to design raid content, and they werent leaving. So blizzard did the next best thing, hire top raiders to design content.
Its the same thing some of us ask ourselfs since the early days of console games vs PC games. Console games are damn near flawless and bug free, but they have to be, there are no patches. The ability to patch makes for sloppy programming.
