It will be interesting to see how Thief 4 turns out. No big publisher is going to fund a pure stealth game these days. That's why Deus Ex, Hitman, Splinter Cell, Metal Gear, Ghost Recon, etc, all let you shoot your way through if you want. I suspect Thief 4 will make combat a much more viable option than in the previous games.

If you still CAN stealth your way through the entire game, what does it matter?

It doesn't matter much to me because I sneak by default. However, a lot of people will always take the path of least resistance, so if a game lets them run 'n gun (or run 'n arrow in this case), that's exactly what they'll do. Thief is, at its heart, a game about stealing. Garrett isn't an elite assassin, spy or soldier. He's a thief. As such, it doesn't really make any sense for him to be competent in combat. Also, if fighting is a viable option, then there isn't much consequence for getting caught, which makes sneaking far less intense unless you actually care about ghosting.
