Why spend money on useful features when you can just shove RGB everywhere! I feel like a "get off my lawn" old man and I'm not even 30 yet....Well yeah. But to understand these decisions you have to look at the whole board. There are literally thousands of components on a board. If all of them change by even a very small amount of money, it adds up.
Part of the difficulty in design is figuring out where it makes sense to spend on more or higher quality, and where it is safe to cut so you don't wind up with a $700 motherboard...
