I think it's not specific to Photomatix, though they make it too easy to do.

I call it the "HDR (Overdone)" look.

I understand your point but I think that Photomatix does add some additional subtle but distinctive quality. I'd say it has to do with their local contrast algorithm and not just the fact that the defaults are too aggressive (for my taste). I was underwhelmed with the results even after toning down those sliders.

I was also quite unhappy with the alignment algorithms in Photomatix. The king in that regard is the align_image_stack program from the Hugin package.
