Its impossible to optimize everything simultaneously in a route design. It's just like bike design, or anything else for that matter. Sometimes navigational simplicity takes a back seat to some other issue. My route designs tend to be complicated because I put safety and scenery near the top of the priority list. In my neck of the woods, this forces lots of turns. I personally like lots of turns as it keeps me mentally engaged. One of my main struggles on randonees is boredom.
