I can't relate to that at all.Think of it this way: how exasperated would you be if a game was full of character designs that you loathed? Everyone has certain tastes when it comes to character designs (for example, Testuya Nomura's designs really kill many of the more recent FFs for me). If you like them, that's fine. Not all people are going to.
In that case I most likely wouldn't play the game in the first place. I guess it's different when you're a reviewer and you have to play games with artwork that doesn't match your tastes.
