A cube is a familiar structure that people use to easily and quickly grasp, sort and otherwise organize things. Since all sides of a cube are the same length, and all angles at which those sides connect to each other are 90 degrees, the result is a very balanced look. Cubes are most commonly used as the basis for dice, but you will also find them when dealing with long distance transport. Their shape lends itself well to stacking and filling out even spaces. That is why most cube games tend to be puzzles, stacking games or construction games in general. While an action game with a number of cubes isn't unheard of, it doesn't represent the majority of those games.
