Everybody in a fantasy world having the same general accent - usually British. Some variation - Cockney orcs, high-class Gondorians, country Hobbits - but all based on the British accent.

C'mon, people! Hobbits, Elves, Gondorians, and Rohirrim are not going to have the same accent! They're separated by many leagues and entirely different societies! Switch it up some.

(I'll give props to the animated version of The Hobbit. Though it's strange to hear Thranduil speaking in a German accent, at least it makes sense that he'd have a different one than members of other races.)
