Cease and desist letter doesn't have any legal power though, its more like a warning but without actual court involvement. One can decide to ignore it, but afaik no letters were even sent by them, right?

Of course its..umm the decision in the wake of what was happening outside that matters here, but yea.

Because Betaarchive doesn't care about Nintendo, apparently.

No, the reason is that what BA does is illegal, and Nintendo has shown countless times that they are very intent on shutting down every illegal distribution of any of their intellectual property, no matter how old/unremarkable.

It is simply self-defense

The fact that most other rights holders don't care about their old stuff doesn't make distributing it legal
I upload stuff to archive.org from time to time. See here for everything that doesn't fit BA
