True that, but there are some exceptions...

Square isn't bad either. There's so many styles of mapping that it's difficult to say one is better than the other (although admittedly, some are just plain bad). And the notion that there's such things as a "perfect mapping style" are completely false.
Well, things usually go wrong when people try to combine style, like the the original style from Gamefreak with the "more natural" style I usually use. It almost always ends up in a really cluttered map...

I think I need to do a couple of blog posts/tutorials/something about mapping styles one day.
Sounds like a good idea to me, I'd love to help you out with it!
