Our wallets don't speak loudly enough for AAA devs to worry about our wants when they know that Halo/Gears of War nation will buy three million copies of their 360 game.

this seems mostly true however i do think that there are developers who still push for more "hardcore" rpg elements (see: obsidian) and bethesda seems to want to strike a balance rather than go full-out "commercial"... but the problems you mention come into play when the publishers get involved, and push for the most overblown "commercialization" possible

i personally think a lot of developers would rather deliver a good GAME instead of a vapid CASH-IN... but unfortunately the people that fund the development dont care about that, they just want a larger return on their investment
Go forth, and kill!
