You keep going on about how they need a UI specialist and such but I'm pretty sure they have one and I'm pretty sure they're doing a fine job. I actually like the UI.
I don't like that its missing so many obvious feature improvements that would make life so much easier using steam. They haven't done much with the UI in forever. Even the supposed "upgrade" a while back to a new browser interface didn't really change much.
The overall UI is fine, it just needs a lot of tweaking. It shouldn't take me hours to figure out what co-op games I own. It would be like shopping for things on amazon and newegg with no way to narrow things down except by the first main category. It makes it tough if you can't specify that you want to find motherboards for an intel 1155 pin CPU.
I think we just have different concepts of what "UI" pertains to. I would consider everything you've mentioned to be application features, the UI (and UX) is how those features are presented and accessed. Given the existing features I find them to all be very accesible and aesthetically pleasing, so good UI
