I believe that it is for two reasons: Nontable based implementations of AES are possible, but (assuming you don't have AES-NI or something similar) are significantly slower than table based implementations (perhaps $10\times$ to $20\times$ slower) For a lot of uses, timing attacks aren't particularly relevant (as either the attacker can't get the ...

Yes, string algorithms can be vulnerable to timing attacks. A very common example is string comparison. The best performing way to implement it in general is to compare two strings one character (or memory word) at a time and return inequality as soon as they don't match. However, this kind of a routine is vulnerable to timing attacks that can find the ...

Sure you can do. There are many lattice attacks, using your second assumption, to ECDSA (which also applied to DSA). For instance see Smart and Howgrave-Graham and Shparlinski and Nguyen. All the lattice attacks base on finding small solutions (for the ephemeral key $k$ and the private key $a$) to the signing equation $sk-ra\equiv H(m)\pmod q.$ If you have ...
