While I think creativity is important and should be preserved, there really should be more standardization and consistency for web design when sites are related or linked to each other.
Likewise, Content Management Systems (which generally effect overall design) can improve consistency from a functional standpoint.
Ideally, all government sites could have at least some common design element to establish identity - but if that's not possible they could at least be consistently designed on a departmental level. The DoD is particularly sprawling and unwieldy in this respect.
