Doing that would force them to make more crazy stuff, which should be the whole point of this game. Create some story around how the worlds collided and let people swap character in and out at any time. Disney already has released Cars products to use in (and under) water; so is not like they're against any crazy ideas. Put characters in boats in water stages, gave them wings or jetpacks to flying levels, etc.
But instead, Infinity was like playing the separate standalone games for each franchise in one package...and in some cases (like Toy Story 3 and Cars 2) the standalone games were already better and cheaper too than buying the 2 figures + disc sets.
The figures were nice collectibles at least, but the actual use in game left a lot to be desired. Was the equivalent of playing Assassin's Creed II with the (limited edition) Ezio statue right next to your TV, since the figurines do basically nothing.
There's still some promise, hopefully they fix a ton of things on this year's game..and hopefully make a more Disney oriented game at some point. Seeing how even Mickey was left not only as one of the last figurines to be officially released, but used only on Toy Box was disappointing.

Star Wars characters will probably ripped from Clone Wars, since it's close the visual style of Infinity.
