Atari menus were better, but I think thats mainly because of two reasons.
Lots of Atari ST owners were single sided drive owners so that there was an incentive to compact stuff down, and secondly Atari ST games were capable of being compacted better because music with samples were not in the majority of games, and they had less colours, all in all, helped contribute to ST games being compacted better.
On Amiga, there was only the compact scene for early games, and then they got too big to be significantly reduced in size.
The menu scene was better on Amiga for intro/dentro compilations I think, quite a bit of effort was done there, games were just getting too big too quickly.
