Because, to be honest, the theme at any given big game or scenario rarely makes much of a difference to the people playing it. I've been to at least a dozen scenarios a year for the last 7 years and I can really only think of 2 or 3 that had a significant portion of players actually dress to the theme or change their rig for it.
I'd love to see it happen more often, as I feel it does add a cool bit of flair to a game when people dress up for it, but at the same time I know it's not likely since some people just don't care and it's generally hard to get a couple hundred people on the same page with that sort of thing.
There's also nothing stopping you from adapting a western style rig or costume for any given game, regardless of theme. I've seen a few guys who wear double-breasted suits for a gangster-type look on the regular, as well as some vaguely-western costumes (jeans and cowboy boots with a stock class rig), even though the theme had nothing to do with either.
