By definition all genres have their tropes and standards (it's what makes it a genre!) - but some have wider parameters and variations and fewer 'rules'.

For me, trance suffers from having the most rigid set of rules and lack of variation and imagination - but this is just my opinion from the outside looking in as I don't really like it.

You could say the same for Tech House: What started out as a new and exciting style has ended up eating itself and become very formulaic - what would have been described as good Tech House a few years ago (i.e. it doesn't sound like stuff in the current Beatport Tech House chart) is no longer considered Tech House.
