Only a very small minority would disagree with you I suspect. Yes, faces that have characteristics only meshed (as opposed to real) faces could have get fixed right away in my game, like when a face has sharp edges or has wacky proportions. When I posted a while back about actually liking most of the the Maxis faces I in no way wanted to imply I liked the faces to look like abstract art . People disagree about what looks 'too' cartoony maybe, but most of us want the faces to look reasonable realistic in relative proportions (so not a nose that's 1/4 of the surface of the face, dear Maxis) and be relatively smooth in shape.
(On the other hand, some real life people have really unfortunate genes (expressed), don't underestimate how weird real-life humans can look.)

I've found that having different default skin tones makes a huge difference in how the weird sim faces looks. Try CatofEvilGenius' age-modified Hysterical Paroxysm Idolatry of Flesh skins and compare them to Pooklet's We've got Obsessions skins on the same sims. They look totally different from each other as well as totally different from Maxis' skins on the same facial structure.

I don't like color-themed residential lots or apartments. No offense to anyone who decorates like this, you do you, I just find it silly to have all the objects and decorations in every room of the house done in the same color. If I saw that in real life, I'd think the owners were nuts, but even with sims, I can't imagine every man, woman and child sim would want their toilet the same color as their bedding, fridge and living room rug.

If you desperately want to do this for the sake of designation, at least pick a theme color that's more subtle than the blinding school bus yellow and firetruck red tones.

Except it isn't because they are cartoony. The Ottomas family grandmother is a good example of an overworked face not a cartoony one and most times the twins inherit her facial structure which when combined with the others produces weird cheeks, eye sockets and chins. Any overly worked sim face (think celebrity ones) will produce ugly offspring.
