I think you are remembering a different game. Uniques were quite common in D2. To the point where people would just stop picking up quite a lot of the low-end stuff. They did have some really good higher-end stuff, but even a lot of that wasn't that great. There's a reason most people switched to runewords when they came out - they were much better than what's available.
Presumably Blizzard will do something similar here - introduce better gear once the game's been out awhile. Although it'll be interesting to see what they add to go with it. The uber Tristram stuff was creative, but not exactly compelling.
