I agree, it might be time to stop trying to create recipes that call for cream cheese, yogurt or cottage cheese since the whole idea of using the ingredients is to get that flavor into the dish. Do you feel the same about sour cream? Go with ingredients you like. Maybe you will invent a fabulous new dish that will get rave reviews. It almost sound like asking what can I substitute for butter in a hot buttered rum since I don't like butter.

Would Creme Fraiche be suitable? Or is it too much like sour cream?

Crème fraîche is the French version of Crema Mexican and therefore would not be a good substitute for cream cheese. It would be too thin and watery.
