I'm sorry about monsters having ability scores in 3E. We were desperate to make the game system less arbitrary and more systematic. Giving monsters ability scores had the positive effect of making a gelatinous cube easy to hit. I mean, it's a 10 foot by 10 foot wall of goo. You ought to be able to hit the thing with your sword. But ability scores for monsters meant it became way too hard For DMs to create their own monsters, and creativity is something D&D does better than any computer game. Sorry, everyone. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
