Default Living Underground

Anyone ever thought about building a house 100% underground? I think it'd be an interesting proposition if you could get over the fact that you were actually living underground. The earth stays at a constant temperature, which would mean lower heating bills in the winter, and nearly non-existent cooling bills in the summer. Also, The whole top could be covered with earth and grass, adding to its green appeal. Humidity and ventilation could be a problem but a simple powered HRV type system, maybe using a hacked dehumidifier which would aid in humidity removal.
