Well, "Bruce Wayne died with his parents" just sounds cool. When you are 14 years old. Keep in mind, in 1989 the version that still counted as Batman since the "new" Batman wasn't really defined was still the pre-crisis version where young Bruce even speculated about becoming an ordinary policeman.

I like Burton's Batman too, but I don't see it as a definitive version of the character. That goes to DCAU Batman.
Although you have to make a difference between the original BTAS Batman and the TNBA/JL Batman. The former was more like a "nice uncle" (he even had a Grey Ghost's Lair...) while the later one was more in line with the Batdick from the comics. Seems natural, when BTAS was developed its creators were still drawing from Batman stuff from guys like O'Neil, Robbins, Reed, Wein, Conway, Moench and Barr while later they seem to be more influenced by the 90s writers.
