I don't think the location icons deserve such a harsh comment. They are well done, but they don't fit at all. They are the wrong style for the setting of ESD. They would probably fit the general setting and atmosphere better on Risa at a resort or something.
What I like about them, however is the way they stick out and flicker, i think that is nice, but would definitely look better with a sharper, no-nonsense art style. I remember looking at the interact icons at the bank/mail and thinking how that kind of sharpness and style would be better for the ESD location icons than their current style.
The map icons for the various vendors and services could use a similar treatment, though I'm not sure I care as much about them as the location icons on the walls.
