Because in the live action shots, fire is everywhere, stuff is blowing up and the camera is shaking - you cut to the effects, and its as static shot with like 2 phaser beams - It really undersells whats happening.
Well, I'd say it served well in 1990 when the episode came out and it's done very well ever since. I don't see why they need to add in "kewl new maneuvers and 'splosions!" just for the hell of it.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
