Macro ability/sensor size?

Since the macro capability is so terrible on my G1X, and the IQ is quite good, it must be that sensor size affects a camera's macro mode.  It was better on the G10. If the better compact cameras are going with larger sensors now, are we going to lose good macro mode on these (better) cameras?

I think macro ability has to do with the lenses.  With a built-in lens on a non-dslr, good macro ability means trading off on image quality at other focal lengths, especially for a zoom lens.
