One thing which doesn't exactly help with making interesting melodies is too intense, distinct sound of synth. There are synths which can be used for only simple 1-3 notes melodies. You can brake the rule and make them going through many different notes like Squarepusher did in his last album, but that intensity of music isn't accptable for everyone. :mayonesa:
