How is one objective about personal taste? It's like me reviewing blended varietals when I prefer single vineyard wines.
By disclosing that it's a personal preference. This isn't hard, good reviewers like the ones in say C&D or Motortrend do it all the time.

I always prefer reviews that break it down into categories, like Graphics, game-play and story. I think it encourages the reviewer to look at the game more objectively, and helps the reader separate out the components that matter to them. If a reviewer is forced to recognize that other components of a game are well implemented they may be less likely to give the game a low score because all the female characters are carrying around a pair of award winning watermelons. Basically forcing the reviewer to look at other aspects of the game than focus solely on one component.
I always preferred no categories (because often good games were rated worse because of graphics), but you made me realize, that categories indeed make sense.

Ebert? Is that like Dilbert? I like Dilbert, but I miss his signature tie in the more recent comics.

A poorly written article at Forbes. However, it's objectively poorly written, so at least there's that.
