You know this is rather a more philosophical tangent but I think there are reasonable ways of saying objectively whether an interface is good design or not besides audience taste. For instance the time it takes to get to an option. Or how quickly users become accustomed or proficient with the UI. Or how many clicks to get to an option. I think that the general concept of the new interface is a pretty cool one and I see where Bethsoft was going with it. But PC implementation was kind of kludgy and I can reasonably say that it created some slowdowns in those objective measures.
