I can't say I disagree with you on that last point - it certainly is partly
fashion.  Unfortanately, the fashion hasn't made its way to Flash developers
yet, whose sites are larger and more complex than ever.

I like image-intensive sites when the character of the site calls for it.
It works great for some sites, lousy for others.  Like everything else, it
all comes down to the vision and skill of the designer.
