Well, keep in mind the pictures shown are proofs of concept, not
finished art. Any "immaturity" you perceive is simply a result of the
artists wanting to get ideas out for study, as opposed to polished
backgrounds ready to go into the distribution as-is.
I think the collage idea is interesting, but probably visually
confusing in a distribution that's always had a very solid track
record of unified visual themes.
