I sure as hell hope this thing isn't the final design. Blue and yellow....who even thought of that? :S

I think that's just a particularly bad mash-up of box art and system label. In contrast:

And what about games that don't feature bright sky blue colors on the box art? I don't know....I just really don't like this package design.

I hear you but, what do you want more, to stare at your boxes or play the games?
I still think the Xbox lime green is awful but then again, they are in the closet on a shelf so I don't really care.

The gamecube boxes are probably the most attractive. Its a black case, with a nice arcing shape. Idk, why must cases come in dumb colors like this?

Yes they are (though I think Super Mario Sunshine had a purple one for some reason). Though personally I like the Wii Cases too. Was it the PS2 that had mostly purple game cases?

Also for the Wii U, I don't really mind the blue box, as much as the blue and yellow logo. I just hate the color yellow :/

I don't recall Super Mario Sunshine having a different color case, but maybe some regions or a limited edition thing.

The PS2 cases are a really, really dark blue that pretty much looks black unless you look at thinner areas of the plastic. Could maybe be seen as purple, but not really. Main thing I think of for purple cases are Kinect games.

You mean the logo? The actual Gamecube cases are a dark grey.

Far as different colors, probably just to distinguish them. The bright green that 360 cases are made of is pretty fugly, but you're probably not confusing them with anything.
