I think you might change your mind after seeing a couple well executed interiors that now focus more on creating a "cockpit" feeling for the driver, where everything is angled towards the person driving the car. The new BMW 5 series does it very well, and that Seat looks great to me.
Oh, there's definitely some nice ones out there. I see their appeal a bit more in larger cars like the 5-series. In compact cars, I think they can sometimes create an unintentional cramped/claustrophobic effect.
