Why is it that GW keeps coming up with these stupid and hideous vehicle designs? For the past few years now, every other vehicle they've released (that isn't just a plastic kit version of a Forge World vehicle) has been ugly and dumb as fuck.

I know the original design came from Epic. It should have stayed in Epic.

Given that troops choices tend to be what win games for most people nowadays, in conjunction sometimes with flyers, neither of which cost a great deal, I hardly think your argument holds water.

The main problem is that they're so much blander than Space Marine. Titan Legions got a little crazy with the special rules, but Epic threw the baby out with the bathwater and even Armageddon didn't do much to add the flavor back in.

The other problem is it ditched Space Marine's wonderful phased orders system for the crappy "I Go, You Go Sit And Read" system every other GW game has.
