how ugly can it be, when all you really see is the roller anyhow? IMO, most chainguides are so overbuilt for anything other than full on DH riding. stinger or something similar + bashring + front mech should work very well in the majority of cases. otherwise something is screwy with your setup. granted, if onoy running a single front ring rather than two, that changes things as well.
to the OP: make sure you're not running too much chain. run a shorter cage rear mech if you can. make sure your b-tension screw isn't adjusted out of whack.
