Well, they kind of did exactly that on Deep Space Nine. There was the season two episode "Sanctuary", where the entires first act was about the universal translator not being able to decipher the language of the alien of the week. An then there was "Littel Green Men", where the universal translator wasn't working properly either.
By the entire first act, you mean the first 45 seconds of the scene where she keeps talking until the translator works out her language.....
No. I really think you're misremembering the episode. It really is the first 15 minutes (!) of the episode. So I wasn't exaggerating – you seem to underestimate the time the episode spends with the problem.

That scene was great.
Yup, great scene, great dialog, great actors. Thank you!

Garak: »My dear doctor, they're all true.«
Bashir: »Even the lies?«
Garak: »Especially the lies.«
