I have found that such tools address only the simplest tasks anyway

Basically, that's only correct in some specific cases. However, when talking about products such as the blueprints system of unreal engine, things become totally different.
In this VIDEO, you can see how one person made an advanced video game that is now seen as the most awaited RPG game in 2018- not mention that it is, seriously, free of any single line of code. It is pure blueprints.

We need tools that help with the difficult tasks. Instead they take the easy things and make them simple -- "hey, we saved 90%" -- while not helping with the difficult tasks and actually making the difficult even more difficult to do in that framework/tool.

You are perfectly correct. We need sophisticated tools that help us with the difficult tasks. That's why tools such as visual scripting environments do exist.

The project that I mentioned above, which is 100% blueprints( no single line of codes) has been adopted by a game development studio, and they continued working on the project using blueprints only.


Here is the game after the adoption (still, no line of code):
