I think your missing the biggest part of your own post, which is that these are PC players you are talking about. PC players are the oldest demographic among this generation's platforms. Considering this, it is natural that this demographic is more interested in complex and engaging games than more simplified games. But that doesn't mean that this the only market Ubisoft to target their games. Console gamers make up a younger demographic but are many more times vast than PC. Remember, Ubisoft is a business and in order to make a profit these days they have to tarket a much wider market and just relying on a few hundred-thousand sales from the PC crowd is not their goal.
