Why is vector illustration typically simplified and stylized?

It really comes down to the basic differences between vector images and raster images.  Things like shading and blending are not possible with vector images.  Vector illustrations can only create simple linear or radial gradients.   So when an illustrator is using a vector for an illustration, they must get rid of small details that would make the image too complicated.  Trying to depict every detail of an image in an illustration would take massive amounts of time.
