It already have far longer length compared to other linear games of that time. (RE games, MGS games that had too much cutscenes, Onimusha games, Devil May Cry , Max Payne 1 and 2 etc)
The problem is, for me, too much wandering in the bland open world and too little in the way of tomb-like environments. Two would not be too few, as long as there was more tombs.

Was this game really bigger than those ones? It feels short to me.

I took the liberty of looking into TRC and AoD's credits on MobyGames, and indeed all veterans were in TRC! I listed below the TR games they worked before TRC and TRAoD:
Richard morton - TRIII, IV, TLA - design
Richard Flower - TRIII, IV - programming
Chris Coupe - TRIII, IV - programming
Jeremy Heath Smith - TRII, III, IV - producer
Adrian E Smith - TRII, III, IV - producer

None of the ones that were working in AoD seem to have worked with TR before AoD!
Some, however, worked in other (arguably smaller) IPs:
Stephane Denis - Alone in the Dark IV - programmer
Neil Topham - Fighting Force 1 e 2 - programmer
Sarah Avory - Fighting Force 1 e 2 - programmer

The rest seems rather new to game development.
