Probably because X-Wing Miniatures Game is a miniatures game (clue is in the name) and the miniatures from Fallout are just meeples.

That's no reason at all, sorry.

Just because it's not a reason you don't personally approve of doesn't mean it's not a perfectly valid reason. They really don't have any requirement to justify their decision to you and you have no obligation to justify whether or not you choose to purchase the game. That's your decision.

It has been explained in the Runewars thread, in the Legions thread and here.

 

First the X-Wing minis aren't that great, they have a rather basic paintcoat, second ships (or at least the X-Wing/Armada) are easier to paint than infantry. Look at the human sized prepainted Arkham figures, the really do not look good and it would cost more money to produce and so we would have to pay a higher price to get it. And according to someone else some FFG guy was asked why the IA minis are not prepainted at a GenCon or something like that and they thought about it but for whatever reaseon (reason was stated but I don't remember it) they thought it was not feasible.
