I think it's more accurate to think of aesthetics as a key ingredient in a recipe, as opposed to the icing on the cake.
Stephen P. Anderson, Seductive Interaction Design: Creating Playful, Fun, and Effective User Experiences

While any software system introduces some kind of formalization of the world, HCI (like AI) deals with formalizations of human cognition and activity. These are the issues that have lay at the heart of philosophical debate for centuries. In some ways, it would be hard to imagine a more philosophical enterprise.
Paul Dourish
