comment Why do games seemingly reload the entire level when restarting a level?
The development and test environments should take note of excessive load times between levels and the test environments MUST be configured to simulate the media load speeds correctly possibly even exaggerate them - the time to restart a level, can be a significant factor in whether to play a game or more importantly buy the next game.

Great answer... the cynical side of me, would put your: "less work for devs' point higher up the list...but perhaps its the engine's implementation that could be better.
