My impression is those days are over. Maybe someone else did it. They never did go on the conversational 90 degree offset, but if you look at the very top image in this thread they have it framed pretty well. I don't recall anything super weird lately either. One this, if they go with the dialog box on either the left or the right (I prefer right), they should offset the camera such that the player is looking in that direction, rather than away. As in the top 3 images, it wouldn't be as "Leading" for the eye if the dialog box were on the left, as the eye is naturally drawn right in all three instances.
