There is a difference between an inside joke (Cardassian sunrise), a homage (Nimoy) and a blunt copy&paste job (the above-mentioned stuff).
Look at BTTF: In every film it's "oh it was just a dream, now you're back in 1955 / on the 27th floor / on the McFly farm..." and there is a skateboard/hoverboard/horsedrag scene in each one of them - still it's fun. Because sometimes we like copied scenes if they remind us of what came before.
