I agree with OP, and think that armour is not exactly how star wars should look like, BUT I think that in general terms, we are being mind closed in terms of "what a bounty hunter should look like" or a "sith should look like"
WHAT I MEAN: We got a lot of examples of characters that, as we see them in movies, DON'T LOOK LIKE THEIR CLASS IS SUPOSED TO BE DRESSED. So, it is not only a matter of horrible designs, i think there is also a lack of diversity, having bounty hunters that ALL have to be like Boba fett (mandalorians) OR having Jedi that ALL have to look like Mace Windu.
SOME EXAMPLES OF CHARACTERS FROM STAR WARS THAT DON'T LOOK LIKE THEIR CLASS IS SUPOSSED TO LOOK LIKE
Aurra Sing: wears no armour, got gadgets and sexy jumpsuit
4-LOM: In fact, is a protocol droid. So we could asume he simply is dirty
Zuckuss: wears ROBE as a jedi!!
Bossk: Some kind of Space suit!!
Dengar: Wears no helmet!! AND it's armour is similar to that of troopers
Cad Bane: Western like
Djas Puhr: Dark green jacket and pants, no armour
Zam Vessel: wears a coat and normal pants, only the helmet and gadgets resembles Boba fett
Greedo WAS a bounty hunter too! and he wore green suit and orange vest...
Luke in EMPIRE: Soldier on Hoth and Pilot on bespin
Luke in JEDI: Under the robe wears BLACK suit
