To me it makes sense that they would want the dreamworld to be mostly normal. It wouldn't do to try to be breaking into a safe to get business secrets if the building suddenly morphs into an elephant and goes crashing into a wall of strawberries or something. They want everything controlled and normal so they can manage the activities in the dream world.
Plus, as Cobb pointed out to Ariadne in the film, doing a lot of that stuff from the architect's standpoint (Arthur also seemed handy at doing some of the creative tricks too, so it's unclear if this is a general skill or one normally used by the architect) raises the target's subconscious awareness of the intruders. Dreams may have a more surreal quality than the real world, but often even in dreams we have enough of an awareness to tell that something is weird. We just accept it more readily in that state.

Also the vault where Fisher saw his father in the Alpine Hospital reminded me a lot of a Holodeck.

You too?
