What's wrong with mandatory water routes? It's like a cave that is mandatory to travel through. We had two main ones (Chargestone and Twist). Those could easily have been water routes.

Well in past games I can't say I've enjoyed water routes, I hate to accuse certain regions, but I personally didn't enjoy Hoenn's love for the sea.

Chargestone Cave actually had plot progression and I can't say Twist Mountain is enjoyable, but at least the aesthetics differ slightly from regular caves. Unlike water routes, which are usually plotless and aesthetically similar.

And that is why I'm fond of Unova's bridge theme; they other something different in connecting towns, and in the case of Village Bridge a form of (optional) experience.
