Why do Warstaves still have STR + INT affinities since they CANNOT ROLL caster mods since 3.8?

Same reason claws have dex+int requirements and can't roll caster mods, because its not about caster mods.
“Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.”

― George Carlin
Intelligence isn't just about "caster" stuff though. It's also associated with, for example, critical strikes, which staves have a high chance for.

If you want two-handed weapons with Str or Str+Dex requirements, Maces, Swords and Axes already exist.

Yes it is.

Only 3 Blue attack gems in the game, all usable Only with wands.

Warstaves can be used primarily with red gems and second with dex gems.

This is a relic from the time where we didn't have Warstaves.

This brings the question why is GGG so fixated in making melee attacks / totems STR based and spells INT based.

it would not kill them to add int melee attacks or str damage spells for a change
