Oh they are - at least the b-pro is simple. Why are all the good boards so .... 'Busy' and icky. My 5150 has an awesome design but its a crappy board lol.
Given that budget I'd get the Roxy XOXO PTX for sure. Gnu Ladies Choice would be a close 2nd. NS Infinity and Arbor Swoon are worth a look too.
However I agree with what you're saying about board graphics. Much prefer the topsheet on ones like the Roxy Banana Smoothie, Gnu Ladies Pickle, and Arbor Swoon/Poparazzi. Stuff like the XOXO and Velvet Guru are so damn ugly.
