I understand why people might disagree with my sentiment and it's totally fine. I agree that Generations was very heartfelt, but ever since then it's always come across as a bit phoned in to me. Especially in Lost Word and Forces, which are the games which came out recently. It felts a bit half hearted in TSR if I'm being honest too, aside from Sandopolis. Mania was obviously great but to be fair I did say Sonic Team! Their involvement in Mania was substantial but they weren't the main developers.
