Actually, they did. The puzzles in Episodes 4 and 5 of BttF were a lot better than the ones in the first three, though they were still pretty easy.
That is the thing that bugs me the most about the episodic format, though. In one of the developer commentaries (I think it was The Devil's Playhouse?) I remember someone explained the benefits of episodic gaming as "If there's a problem in Episode 1, we can have it fixed by Episode 3." Which is nice, but the series is half-over by that point. And if there's still any problems near the end, there's nothing they can do.
