I think the biggest reason among many is that producers today of these mainstream Hollywood movies just aren't very imaginative. They're businessmen, and making movies is like trading stock. The music itself is not important, just that it creates the most appealing package possible to the average consumer, pushes all the right buttons and makes it a "feel good" movie. That's why trailers always have this kind of music - broad, stirring, thematic - it's all about putting butts in seats. Most people in the audience don't notice the music anyway, only if the movie makes them "feel good."
The fact that it's James Horner doing it is a whole other story.
