Also, remember, a whole bunch of the core people that developed these games—thought them up and implemented them—are no longer at Blizzard.
People do definitely identify Blizzard with games they will want to play and buy—as indicated by these monster sales of an expansion, not even a new game—because of the games these particular people made, i.e, Starcraft, Warcraft and Diablo. I don't play online multiplayer, so can't comment on WoW, but do remember from the time of release that it was the last game those devs worked on before leaving.
The people there now are carrying on with other people's ideas, structures, plots, etc so I think that might explain why nothing really innovative is there.
Also of course, the old if it's not broke don't fix it thing.
Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
