Count me as one of those people who wants a theme. If I'm craving an abstract I play Go, otherwise I tend to gravitate to some sort of theme - even if the theme is pasted on. Case in point: I keep wanting to try the game Branches, Twigs, Thorns for no other reason than the imagery of the tree seems kind of captivating.
When I taught Virus Fight to my class today I went into detail how the board represented the computer memory and their programs had a limited amount of space in which to operate etc.
I think themes are useful for people who like to make up stories in their heads for things they are doing. :D
