yeah i think so too. they tried to streamline them, which was not a bad idea, but it was at the expense of some creativity. i.e.: donkey kong and little mac both got punch combos to replace their fairly unique final smashes
Most every character ever since Corrin that's not a clone, Inkling or PP all have the same cinematic attack thing. It's become almost of a copout to just play a cutscene that brings the characters into another dimension, instead of getting to see what happens on the stage itself.
