The conclusion: Yes, 100% right - in regards to the shallow aspects.
But the gameplay has not gone the same direction as WCIII. Blizzard has not been stupid - they have taken into account all this - no heros - no new races- the idea is to keep the balance - and as other have pointed out - the gameplay was on a much slower speed. Blizzard have attempted to appease both the WC3/graphics fans and the hardcore sc fans.
So I think Blizzard should be able to firmly say: SCII is not WCIII in space.
