Baroque*
  • adj. Feature-encrusted; complex; gaudy; verging on excessive. Said of hardware or (esp. ) software designs, this has many of the connotations of elephantine or monstrosity but is less extreme and not pejorative in itself. "Metafont even has features to introduce random variations to its letterform output. Now *that* is baroque!" See also rococo.
