Why can't Nintendo make the Zelda games a yearly release like the Pokemon games?

This.
Nintendo game have quality control, something I wish the majority of today's developers would consider adopting.

Its possible, but only if they kept reusing old assets ala Assassins Creed. The last time they did that we got Majoras Mask right away so I wouldn't be bummed about it. But since then they've always held the idea that each Zelda needs to be unique in itself so its not surprising development takes a while between each game.
