I think that's a case where it's at least valuable to know what the "rules" of the novels written around you are. The same way that if you assume you know what fantasy's like without reading any fantasy, you won't write very good fantasy novels.

But I didn't say anywhere that these story structures are intrinsically good. What I've ranted about are cases where people tried to deviate from them and ended up producing sub-standard work- like deciding they'd have an "open ending" but writing something that made no sense and had no consistency with the previous work.
