To be fair that goes for every shonen action. Come in bad guy, beat bad guy. Repeat and repeat. Dragonball hasn't got the most complicated story but that doesn't mean it isn't a good written piece. It has great action, comedy, power ups and the best rivalry till this day (Vegeta / Goku). And no series can beat the influence it had on current mangakas or what it ever did for the popularity of anime outside of Japan.
Dragonball will always have a special place in my heart being the first anime I ever saw. And I can't count the times I saw the Freeza arc on tv.
