I don't think there is a need for further samples. You have to accept 
that others may not agree with your assessment, that is all. What seems 
obvious to you is actually a point of disagreement. I am trying to view 
the balance of the lines, the line breaks, the hyphenation, and agree 
with Louis that one could find discomfiture to some degree in all, 
including TeX.

Also, as Louis says, when you have the capability of fractional 
adjustments in typeface size, plus a variety of other things to adjust, 
the importance of a line break or hyphenation algorithm becomes less 
critical. It's just one of your tools.
