As for me there are some synths that I think sound great and/or have some great features but the developer decided to use a visual design that tries to please a very specific target group. One example of this would be the SubBoomBass. The name itself is already a terrible choice for a synthesizer but the graphic design with it's graffiti labels just turns me off. Generally I prefer to steer away from synths that try to carter especially to one contemporary music style, like Hip Hop or Dance music. It just feels awfully cheap to me if devs do this and then even slam a hipster-looking UI on it.

I really love Razor for it's "in your face" modern sound, but it seems to lean towards it being "for dub-step" going by most of the pre-sets.
I think Dubstep is actually the pinnacle of Electronic music horribly gone wrong. It irks me especially with Reason REs lately. Seems that every second RE developer thinks he must provide some Dubstep wobbling bass demos and patches.

I think that "KingKorg" (name of the upcoming Korg synth) is even worse which does not mean that the synth is really bad.
