� The default Windows controls always render above all other elements, which can obscure the view of your other game objects
� They're not very customizable, so you're stuck with whatever theme the player has on their PC
� They're not scalable. If you zoom your display, the default Windows elements will stay the same size no matter what! That's totally bogus.
