If you think about it the Male leads were more for combat then making things. I think Klein was like the only one that actually used alchemy in the earlier games, besides the males in the Mana Khemia games that is.
Lets not sugarcoat it, the truth is Gust decided on female characters for the moe - and it works, there are lots of people in the target market who strictly play games with female casts for the moe (Hence Neptunia's popularity).
Hell, GUST even openly admitted that they refused to draw Rorona in her mid-20's because it wouldn't be as cute, so instead they made her a mega-loli for Meruru. I'm still looking forward to the explanation for that in game.
