Most games are simplifying what you can do and the freedom given to the player, because they are more accessible to a wider audience if more people feel comfortable playing them. Its also a lot easier to do.

The only way a game that big in scale and scope could be made now is if it was done by Blizzard/Activision and they cancelled WoW, Diablo 3 and all other projects just to work on something like that and dedicate the infrastructure and support it would require. No other game company in the world has the resources or budget available IMO.
Beg to differ.

They are all based on existing games just extrapolated into new genres or expanded.

All of the concepts are easily hidden behind simple game mechanics.

Besides, whose saying these can't be indie games without AAA graphics?

Same here. Few years back I saw quite advanced modification made by fans that brought ported XW/TF on modern engine.

Daemon Ex: Penguin Revolution
An opengl game with Linux as its main platform, basically a clone of DX:HR but with Tux as the protagonist. You start out as a normal penguin, but over the course of the story you get upgraded with binary blobs and proprietary software. The blobs offer quick-return advantages but slow your long-term progress and can prevent access to certain areas for arbitrary reasons (eg. fglrx eye mod prevents you from healing via hibernation if your natural leg strength is over a certain value). After fighting some heavily augmented bosses like WindowsGuy and OSXCat you find the resources to make all software open-source, but you have a decision whether you can make it free/permissive (risking it closing back up into proprietary software), free/copyleft (risking it being abandoned by users), or sending everything to The Cloud, giving an ideal user experience but ending individuality.
