They don't build new underground stations like they did Old Street (a dreadful example) a century ago. They would be utterly illegal on the grounds of means of escape, general ventilation, smoke venting, accessibility and in so many other areas to start with.
Tunnelled stations, like of old, cannot compete with the cheapness and sheer practicality of digging big holes that are more often than not partially or wholly funded by the buildings that are built atop them.

Which is a great shame. But behaviour has returned to normal!
