Was the EM1 design a total mistake?

I think the EM1 looks ugly and it seems that many other people do as well. The retro styling Olympus chose with the EM5 and Pen series has been successful and I think that Olympus wanted to hold onto that success with the EM1 but the design looks like a mistake this time around.

In this case I think Olympus should have created a DSLR type of design. That would have been much more appropriate for four thirds lens users and they wouldn't have had to force their retro design into something of a Frankenstein monster.
