The reason that all planes look the same is because there are two major manufacturers of commercial airplanes Boeing and Airbus. Most planes in the US are Boeing, most planes in Europe are Airbus.

And these two companies have a different styling to their respective planes. Usually Airbus has a more Bulbous nose cone, whereas Boeing is more missile shaped.
