I've been leaning more and more toward simplification of titles recently. Suppose "widgets," "doodads" and "wingdings" are basically synonyms for the same subject. Where I used to use titles like "Red Widgets | Red Doodads | Red Wingdings" I've recently just been using "Red Widgets."
So far my experience has been that the simpler title ranks just as well for all three phrases, seems to get better clickthrough, and may rank better for the main phrase.
This may be specific to my niche, and as always YMMV, but more and more I'm leaning toward the KISS principle when it comes to titles.
