Dynamic range

Is too much dynamic range also contributing to a digital look? Is lifting too much shadow giving a flat look to photos?

Spot on, I think. Lifting shadows too much, as is all too often the case with HDR, can quickly make the scene unnatural (and unpleasant). Shadows without much detail (or lower contrast) balance a good scene. The brighter/lighter the highlights, the more the brain expects rich shadows.
