why dont modern aircraft have wide wings with incorporated engines?

I understand the argument for large planes that are designed for civil aviation because they need to maximise safety and have a minimum of maintenance costs to remain competitive, but this still feels like a great concept. especially for military aircraft or maybe even seaplanes which benefit from the decreased foreign object intake that podded engines dont provide (such as the saunders roe princess)
also post images of planes that don't make use of podded engines.
