I don't like cliches either, the problem is, the reason a cliche is a cliche is that you've seen it before many times. Now, I believe game marketers have a target population for their games, and that population is not 40 year olds. It's teenagers, and for them, those 'cliches' are not so, they haven't seen it before, or just a few times.

I prefer games that don't have an 'evil race', where you're not 'the chosen one', but let's face it… having an evil race with a very very evil and powerful villain, who can only be defeated by you, the chosen one, is an attractive situation, if you haven't experienced it 2293 times already, and for teenagers, that could be the case.
