USE LOGIC PEOPLES!!!
I don't know, they were able to fit a lot into games like Animal Crossing, and that was in the same format as the new D/P games :). So it can be done without making a game shorter it is just that the Big N does not want to do it ;).
Just like the storyline could have more plot but they do not what to mess with what pokemon has become well known for...
It is, in the end , about marketing. Why put every good change to the series in a single game when they can draw it out into many genrations and make more money?:P *sigh* It is sad though...
