I think  that these days pre-calculation reduces workload on the CPU (though as you rightly point out, a simple retro-style game might not need it) and that is important in these days of reduced energy usage. Many mobile platforms means that battery life is king - even in Windows, where I have a couple of handheld devices that directly benefit from optimisation to keep battery life as long as possible.
