Players have a right to be entertained. Just like the DM has a right to be entertained. If it's the 20 STR half-orc that wants to kill peasants that bothers you, tell the guy that you don't want to play like that (which is pretty much the same as saying, "We play D&D" or "We play Vampire").
i don't believe they have a right to be PASSIVELY entertained... i'm not a showman working the crowd for free...
pay me if you want to demand i run you through a level of diablo
they do have a right (and I would argue an obligation) to ACTIVELY increase the entertainment value of the game.
now, the DM is getting something back for all his/her hard work
