The problem is that we'd continuously fall victim to a marketing ploy if we considered the art alone. A common formula is to release empty character games with pretty art just because it sells (i.e. the customers don't care about the story as long as the girls are lovely). This won't produce a big hit, but there's always a market for it.

These types of games are occasionally translated. For instance, Alcot's "My Girlfriend is the President" is nearly finished (thanks to the gimmicky theme, which was the primary marketing hook). However, I think most translators would rather work on meatier, more interesting games with substance.
