Amiga devs were usually always looking to the side to see what they'd do. They wanted action games like the arcades or consoles. They wanted strategy and "serious" games like PCs. It's really a bit sad.
Well, when it's easy and cheap (no licensing costs for example) to produce games for a platform, you're bound to get a tonne of dross and 'me-toos' along with the gems. It just means you have to be more discerning as a consumer.
