How bad is tile grout, really?

I've never lived in a place with tile on the walls. We had a tile floor with dark brown grout and I never once messed with scrubbing it or doing anything other than what I did to clean the floor.

We are trying to pick tile for the bathrooms and kitchen backsplash and whatever we go with, plan to use a darker grout color to eliminate the need to scrub it to keep looking clean. I'm trying to decide whether I should be extra cautious about using larger tiles to reduce grout lines, or if that's really even a concern.
