In D2, it was more about trying out different builds and playing lots of characters. There were lots of viable and interesting builds and ways to use them in D2. In D3, there is only farming. It's a lot less about making many characters and it's simply more about making the absolute best character. The problem is that the cap of "the best gear" is impossible for any mortal to achieve. This was never the case in D2, and it's actually a pretty big problem with D3 that it has become the case.
I played D2, though nowhere near as much as I play this game, and I understand where you're coming from. For me, a guy with limited time and finances for gaming, I appreciate that this game has me chasing the best possible gear in perpetuity, but I totally understand why many others don't want or desire that experience. All I can say is, in the expansion, I hope Blizzard rises to the occasion and proves that they deserve to be called one of the best developers around. Ideally, they'll find a middle ground, but the design of this game makes it inherently problematic since the only versatility comes from gear, which is not very diverse in itself.
The othe culprit is simply human psychology. We've seen it already with Inferno. It was meant to be a mode for only the most hardcore gamers to continue challenging themselves, but what happened? Casuals, as people often do, identified it as the real end of the game, so they were not satisfied until they could beat it as well, which resulted in frustration, and the inevitable dumbing down of Inferno soon followed. In the same way, even if 99% of the playerbase had gear that was 90% as good as the upper 1% of hardcore players, I suspect that, wanting the best, they would continue to complain that this gear was out of reach and the game was broken. I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

I long ago stopped playing this game because I just don't have the time to put in to get the stuff that is considered good. I had pretty decked out characters in D2 and don't recall playing nearly as many hours to get in that direction, but maybe I did and just don't recall correctly. The thing I don't understand is that this isn't an MMO. It doesn't really matter if people play for a month and stop or play for two years and stop. If the game was fun in that time they'll come back for expansions. Why would casuals come back for that when they have to sink hundreds of hours into a game to get anywhere? It seems like a disconnect in the way they are doing business.
