Why game companies didn't make better games for Amiga

I wonder why game companies did not make games for Amiga that supported better hardware like a 030. They did it for the PC. And they are still doing it. They make games that do not run optimal on today's hardware and as a result people keep buying better hardware.

For example: I have been playing XCOM on the PC and apart from the awful midi sounds, the game crushes the Amiga version in every aspect. There is shading, light variations, gameplay is fluent and instant. Apparently a 030 with 8mb RAM and AGA could have achieved a similar result. But Microprose made the Amiga version inferior. I mean do you have any idea about this? Maybe they stereotyped general Amiga users? Did they think PC users would upgrade but amiga users won't?
