I too like big targets... and using them depends on the situation/context, interface setting, required interaction, and desired aesthetic.

We need to be judicious in our use of giant action buttons. Take a peek at your OS or favorite app; very rarely do they employ mongo buttons... but when they do, it's gnarly!

Brian and I need to come up with a basic design spec/guidelines.

Good point Jim,

When looking at LS2 I notice that some pages you "slim" buttons for drop-down arrows and some use "fat" buttons for drop-down arrows.  Is this intentional?  I am much in favor of the fat buttons and would prefer them over the slim buttons in all cases.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about, see the attached slim/fat screenshots.  Thoughts?  Should we switch all of them to fat or slim?
