To theme, or not to theme. How do you like your games?

I happen to adore theme in games. The more, the better. A good theme won’t cover up bad mechanics for me, but I usually need a good theme to play a game. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy games such as Qyshinsu, Cannon, or even Through the Desert, but most of the time I prefer something oozing with proper theme.

So how about you? Is theme important to you, or could you take it or leave it?
