The point of the pictures you posted were unfairly imbalanced. The shot of the Pokemon game depicted a deliberately shadowed out simply household, something not matched by the surrounding world outside, arguably except by the small town size. In which case good luck with your uphill battle with video game designing as a whole. The shot in the Zelda game eschews 1-for-1 design and throws everything in the room to clutter it Ghibli-style, to the point the black void outside the house is all but not there. It's nice, but it's also a deliberate change to make use of hardware power increase since....whenever Link's Awakening came out, 1991 I think? Great and all, but we all know a George Lucas scenario where we hit that 'may have gone too far in a few places" changes for the supposed better and things turn out better left as is. Example here is by god, do I not get their intention with the art style with the Switch remake for Link's Awakening and is very off-putting after years of imagining it by its artwork via the age of "playing the box art". Hell, I would have taken if it looked like the anime trailer they put out for the remake, but it's....like a Unity-made fan project.
I don't think we're on opposing sides here, we both want the Pokemon games to do better in every regard. This is just an unfair take, and the game's truly are not bad looking for what direction they DID end up taking. If anything, I want to hear from their mouths WHY they went this route, after HeartGold/SoulSilver's aim at updating gen 2 to 4's standards and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire's aim at not just matching X and Y's but surpassing them, filling in as the never finished Pokemon Z essentially. This, from whatever angle you choose to look at it, does not look to fit in to Gen 8's standards. If anything, it's more akin to the Let's Go games, as I mentioned earlier with their battles also replicating their model quality and animations. That is an odd choice if that's their intent.
