There's lots of forms of bad taste. Doing something in a complex sophisticated way when a simplistic straightforward way will get the job done fine is a "favorite" of mine.
But I think in design and engineering, bad taste is not very subjective. I think there is a high degree of consensus among people skilled in those fields about what is in bad taste. Sure there's some subjectivity, but I think it's, in practice, quite small.
