** Not entirely unjustified since HumongousMecha in the 20-25 meter range require a lot of hanger space, along with storage for ammunition and spare parts. Those space needs easily dwarf crew accomodations for any reasonably sized crew, so it doesn't cost that much more to add a few small luxuries.

* ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness''. Spoofed when Scotty finds himself running for a control terminal which is at the end of a very long hanger bay.

** The same film shows the disadvantages of this trope when GravityScrew causes everything from shuttles to people to start falling down corridors and hangers that have suddenly turned into huge pits.

To clarify, the ships of Jurai are powered by Royal Trees that draws energy from multiple dimensions from their roots, which are direct descendants of Tsunami, one of the goddesses which created the multi-dimensional ''Tenchi Muyo'' universe. Along with obscene amounts of speed and firepower, a Royal Tree can generate a pocket dimension for its crew. Like the [[Series/DoctorWho TARDIS]], a Jurai treeship is MUCH BiggerOnTheInside than it looks on the outside. Essentially, the interior is pretty much as big as the owner wants it to be. A full size luxury resort and hotel, complete with wildlife park? No problem!\\\
Hey, if they are advance enough to build the galaxies most powerful spaceships out of nothing but WOOD without using nails and screws or even glue, and the trees used to power their ships have the ability to put up force fields ''wings'' that are so powerful that not even another goddess at the same level as Tsunami cannot even comprehend how it was done in over 20,000 years she descended, what can't they do?
** Outside of a couple of exceptions, they can't beat Ryo-ohki.

* Not to mention Vectors corp. HQ, The Dämmerung, a ship that is 1000km long.
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' has The Eldridge.

We don't exactly what is was for before it crashed on the planet, but we do find its wreckage, which is so huge that the giant robots everyone pilots take a really long time to walk around its interiors, and it had enough space in it for at least two giant submarine like vehicles.

* "Terra!" , wrote by Stefano Benni, narrates a weird space race to reach a mythical planet that holds the secret for unlimited energy, in a future when humanity has ruined planet Earth. Three spaceships are sent from different nation, playing with the trope in every direction:
** the "''Calalbakrab''" (Arabian-American-Russian flagship) is way, way big, with dozen of swimming pools, at least a soccer field, some shopping center and so on. It's shaped like a scorpion, can detach in three contained ships and sports an energy cannon able to vaporize entire fleets;
** the "''Proteo Tien''" (Asian-European converted utility ship) lacks room and is quite spartan. Crewmen are often required to speak softly because loud noises can be heared in the entire ship;
** last ship, the "''Akai Mazinga Zuikaku''" (Japan ''battleship'') is smaller that a regular satellite, is manned by a liofilized captain/warrior/explorer and sixty trained mices, and has a single multipurpose room.

* ''SystemShock 2'' gives us two different extremes: The Trioptimum experimental interstellar ship ''Von Braun'' and the UNN warship ''Rickenbacker.'' The ''Von Braun'' plays the trope very straight--to the point that the ship is almost like a small city. Its recreation deck has a basketball court, a swimming pool, and a ''mall''--but considering this ship was designed to carry out mankind's first interstellar journey trillions of miles from any source of supply, the creature comforts are {{justified|Trope}}. Meanwhile, the ''Rickenbacker'' averts the trope with a much more cramped and spartan deck layout. Logs reveal that a lot of the soldiers on the ''Rickenbacker'' spent their downtime on the ''Von Braun''.

*** With the advent of [[TransportersAndTeleporters the teraport]], much of the noncombatant sector of Battleplates (which amounts to a decent sized city) is teraported out of the interior during combat engagements to prevent unnecessary losses, leaving a good chunk of a the Battleplate's interior ''hollow''.

* ''Franchise/StarCraft'':
** The ''Hyperion'' has wide corridors, paintings, marble sinks in the Commander's quarters, and a cantina. The original owner, Arcturus Mengsk had rather expensive tastes, Jim Raynor never had the time to refurbish to suit his more spartan preferences. The wide open spaces aren't very defensible against boarding actions either.
** The ''Spear of Adun'' is pretty much nothing but wide open spaces. Though it was designed to host an entire Protoss civilization.
