There could be answers like:

I know and like LC and I prefer LC:TBG
I know but don't like LC and I prefer LC:TBG
I don't know LC and I prefer LC:TBG
I know and like LC and I prefer Keltis
I know but don't like LC and I prefer Keltis
I don't know LC and I prefer Keltis

I guess many choose LC:TBG because it connects to LC, even if with an inferior graphic design (the graphic design for either LC or Keltis is significantly better than for LC:TBG). I also think the rules for Keltis work better.
But LC is a very popular game here at BGG so that makes LC:TBG more popular than Keltis.

You talk as if the two games are different? I was told by the OP that these are the same game just different "versions".

Yes they are just different versions. There is only a tiny rule change in LC:TBG: you can place your cards only in ascending order (and placement in descending order like in Keltis is only an optional rule).

Pretty colors versus a single shade - Advantage Cities

Scattered pathways versus collected pathways (for comparative glances at the status) - Advantage Keltis

The choice is merely visual.

For the most part the elements of this question are about the board and components. Although they are the same game rules the component handling works different. For instance in Keltis you form discard piles next to the board. In LC:tBG, the discard piles are on the board at the end of the paths. So not really rules differences, but you do notice a different feel.

Personally, I love the Indiana Jones meeples...

I really don't understand why Rio Grande is doing a rethemed Keltis. Doing new art work, etc. for an already established game is the same failing strategy that Mayfair used when they entered eurogames. Jay worked for Mayfair at the time so knows this.

Will we see more Rio Grande re-worked games instead of straight partnership print runs?

I read somewhere that at least part of the reason for the (un)retheme was to continue to build the "Lost Cities" brand that already includes the Xbox Live Arcade game.
