According to this logic Starcraft 2 is also a console port, since the interface looks like the designers spent way too much time on xbox live. Dragon Age 2 must be an iPhone port then, since the menu system looks like it borrowed some nuts and bolts from apple software. I think that's just a general trend because a lot of people think of consoles when they think of gaming. Thus the interface has to look like on consoles, otherwise it's no game

And yes, there are plenty of horrible console ports. Oblivion, Dead Space, Resident Evil 4, Halo, Halo 2, Assasins Creed etc. are just the tip of the iceberg.
