The STE can get quite close to the Amiga. Rasters have the same colour range, sound costs more CPU time, it has a blitter and hw scrolling. It doesn't have anything like dual playfield, hardware sprites or horizontal overscan. For rasters, split screen parallax etc it's capable enough. You could port many Amiga games to it and run them in one VBL.
