Do you live in a protestant country?
I live in Italy, we have seen plenty of aesthetics.
The classical "natural perfection" of the ancient Greek art,
Baroque art, Mannerism, the sharp edges of Futurism...

I personally don't like to mix personal taste with pragmatism.

If anyone wants to build a game with a simple design, and
probably very addictive, "Monaco" could be a good start.
It has won come IGF prize this year. I bet there could be
a suckless implementation with Nethack-like user interface.

No need for examples of bloated games I guess.
