I'd just like to say:  Yay!

I agree that trying for photo-realistic graphics isn't necessarily the
right way to go -- it can make things less believable instead of more, and
it requires more time to create, more processing power to animate
properly, and more storage or bandwidth.

And, while I'm at it, I'd like to reiterate that a graphical interface
doesn't have to be a 3D real-time animated interface.  Overhead views,
static pictures, etc., can be used as well.
