I understand where you are coming from as I design with photoshop.
However, alot of the people who take the affiloblueprint course are 1. just starting out or 2. have no funds to pay a web builder/designer for a site right off the bat.
Mark just uses wordpress and xsitepro because it is the easiest way to get started.
It is entirely up to the individuals circumstances how they want to put a site online.
The end goal is to outsource anyway but at least with the blueprint they can make a a couple of hundred dollars and reinvest that into a better site or design if they feel the need.
Also, what mark teaches in the blueprint is easily duplicateable.
In my opinion I wouldn't call them cookie cutter sites as the sizes, layout and graphics can be different.
But I know where you are coming from as I hate self replicating websites that get sold by the boatload to new marketers.
Just as an example..
Mark's site http://dogobedienceadvice.com/
makes him some decent money each month.
Is it the best eye popping design? well that is up to the individual I suppose.
I also see a site like http://www.dog-obedience-training-review.com/
which is not mark's site from my knowledge and it is number one for me in google. Is this a good design? again, up to the individual.
Just out of interest can you show us one of your sites that you think does not look like it was designed in 1995.
Just so we can get an idea of what you mean. Would be good to discuss this as other people may have some input.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize
they were the big things.
