It's rare when a game has a very focused vision of what it should be and it all comes together beautifully. Two recent examples I can think of are Delta Green's reboot and Liminal. Both have a coherent thread of artwork that draws together with the text to create an atmosphere and feel that captures the vision of the game and accentuates its flavour. Both benefit from the focus of a single artist - Dennis Detwiller and Jason Behnke respectively - and a distinctive setting.
