I think it's just a matter of pragmatism. For the Halo FPS series they tried to use the game engine for cut-scenes. When you're talking an RTS though... no one really wants to see tiny, low polygon models magnified up close and get some voice acting and mo-cap animation slapped on them. It just kills the effect, so it was more feasible to fall back on the good old pre-rendered cut-scene that's worked so well for JRPGs.

Who knows, there might be real time cut-scenes in the new game as well, but if they're using an RTS engine, they're sure not gonna' look like THAT.
