Has Nintendo ever made a game where they placed more emphasis on flashy aesthetics and over-the-top action rather than fun gameplay mechanics. Usually Nintendo is very good at balancing both, but the closest I can think of is Wario World. The game had a ton of style, but the gameplay while fun, was a bit repetitive.

Most of the Yoshi and Kirby games from the N64 era on. That's referring to style over substance rather than the additional caveat in the TC's post that calls for over the top action.

I'm sure they have, just can't think of any right now

Galaxy 1 and 2

They were very linear and not so much fun to play.
It's not about graphics vs gameplay, it's about profits vs gameplay. Profits are more important than gameplay in this forum. -lgi on the Wii U messageboard

And here we have an example of a wrong opinion.

Take notes everyone.

It was actually Treasure who made Wario World, though it was probably the worst Nintendo published game I've played in my life. It's a shame because Treasure makes great games, they made Ikaruga.

I have a soft spot for Treasure with the Bleach DS games. I don't even like Bleach but those were just fun games. Was Wario World really that bad. I remember my friend rented it back in the day but i don't remember it very much, i don't think we hated it.

Stuff like Wii Music is devoid of both style and substance. Also doesn't really qualify as a game.
If I support the game company, then I won't be supporting the blank DVD business.
