What I enjoy about my favorite series isn't just the setting and characters - it's the plotting, pacing, and general authorial voice. Those, especially the last, are things that are really impossible to imitate in a work of any length. I'm not sure whether it's worse when they try to imitate style (badly) or when they don't - either way, it's like being set for ice cream and finding out you just got a mouthful of asparagus.
