I totally agree with you there.
Weirdly, it seems my top 3 "most beautiful 3D games" are all from around the same time period, with Riven topping the list. Lighthouse and Timelapse make the list more because they are beautifully imagined worlds, rather than because the modelling and textures are particularly realistic by today's standards (although I'm quite surprised at how well the graphics in these have held up over 12-13 years).
