Where are the good templates?

Where are the good templates?

If I browse through the templates in Site Sculptor, I realize, they are all terribly outdated. If one looks at the modern Layout of webassist.com, why is it then, that the templates are so terribly old-fashioned with tiny lettering and minuscule areas? This might be OK for some old shopping carts but not for a modern layout, not to mention the total lack of support for mobile devices like tablets and smartphones.
So, if we buy Design Extender, where are the extended designs? The layouts are the same as some years ago.
It is not enough to change some colors and offer some "free" templates which are just variations of the same outdated layout.
Please update this.
Webassist had some nice improvements in the back-end of DataAssist pages. So, the administrative "Data Bridge" part looks more advanced than the public in "Design Extender's Site Sculptor". My attached examples are only a small part (icons) but even in this detail, you can see the difference.
I would be more than happy to read about a more professional update on this.

The templates in SIte Sculptor are really only intended as a starting point. Site Sculptor offers the ability to import your own Designs to use as templates for the site.

We offer the starting template that you can use, then modify, and create new site designs based on those modifications. Or, more commonly, you can start your own design from scratch, save that as a template, and import that design into Site Sculptor.

Thank you, I think I understand your point of view

But why not start with a stunnimg, brand new and state of the art sample? One which is truly inspiring and great? And it leaves my other question un-answered: Why are there no hints for mobile devices?
I don't know how the numbers are in The United States, but in Europe it is almost half of all access to pages which derive from mobile devices like iPad, Kindle, Android Tablets, smart-phones etc. So, it would be nice to have some tools or samples for those as well. The new expression is "responsive design", meaning that the site checks automatically which device (or device with which resolution) accesses the page and swithces to a different css system.
A good starter in WebAssist was already the print.css and screen.css - could be further developed.
Well, I realize, I am sending a wish list here, which becomes off-topic; maybe someone picks up some points...
