Its only unnecessary for coders and people who are fine with using stock media. To make a decent game which doesnt look like a clone of every other Game Guru users, you need custom media. Instead of making more and more DLCs the devs need to be adding actual engine features. Features that give the users the power to create a custom game which will stand out among the rest. Custom rigged characters is a key part to a custom game. The question you have to ask yourself is, do you want people to say man thats a nice game or do you want people to say, "Oh look, another Game Guru instant game that my kid could of made in a week. Thats what your going to hear when you use stock media.
