Trying to understand the logic of Doom 3's level design

The real question is if those walls are soundproof? I'm sure Sgt Kelly & Theresa got jiggy with it in one of the labs.

I don't think the walls are soundproof, inasmuch as you can hear zombie groans pretty well.

Damn what if you wanted to bone Mary from Delta Labs next door. Not with those walls you can't. Oh well, good thing I don't work for the UAC.

Doom 3's level design tries to look complex and high tech, but is there actual logic/realism to the design of the levels or is it all just made up sci-fi nonsense? Is there logic to where all the pipes go or is it just largely random? And what about all the complex looking walls like these:

Is there actual realism reasons/logic for why a facility would have sloped/shaped walls like this or is it just made up for the sole reason of looking cool visually?

On second thought, I found a floater in one of the bathroom stalls. I tried flushing but the game would not allow me to flush. Bad plumbing. The pipes do not connect !

well Doomguy3 gets to hear the exchange between Swan and Betruger so I guess the answer is no :D

It's futile to find logic behind these complex level designs
When I make a level I just make sure that it looks good, I don't make backstories to it

Is the Doomguy really hearing the conversation, or is he just watching through the window while you, the player, receives this from an omniscient narrator?

This doomguy seems to calmly observe everything around him, absorbing information. Maybe he set down a psychology book and took his reading glasses off just before getting off of the transport at the beginning of the game. So he would have been able to learn just as much about Betruger and Swann's conversation as the player can off of body language alone.

Well the game kinda does. At the start of each level we get a brief backstory explaining what each level does/is for.
