Perfect cutting is great but the flow of the walkway must be perfect or the beautiful cuts don't mean a darn! (no reference to your walkway dvs.)
In a perfect would I agree random pattern is nice, quick, and easy.
But....reality is - some pavers are better suited for different applications.
I love the old look of a 4x8 clay paver (as used in my pic). It has so much character. Charm. And no 2 pavers are identical!
The walk in my picture took 3 of us 12 hrs to cut (36 man hours).
