why does the score matter?

Looking at the 78% of the K-30 makes one think the camera is lacking, whereas one could easily argue that it is over-specced for its class.

I understand what you're saying, but it seems to me that some folks are overly concerned about that score. Anybody looking for a camera should know what features they want. If, after reading the review, they determine that the camera measures up well in the areas they want, why should they care about the overall score? Especially given the fact that the reviewer himself pointed out in the conclusion that most of the cons were related to video and that if video wasn't a concern then this is a very good camera. I really wouldn't expect a reasoning person to conclude, "Gee, this camera does everything I want it to do, but I just can't buy a camera that only scored 78%."
