I disagree. Speaking purely about settings and lore, it is certainly MUCH harder to do tolkienesque high fantasy well, than it is a low fantasy or history inspired setting, simply because experienced audience members have already seen it all. To someone like me, who has experienced tens or even hundreds of various high fantasy settings over the years in all kinds of media, another copycat high fantasy setting without a clever twist is an instant turnoff.
