What ever happened to this GBA - GC hook up. Looked better like that and so did the GBA's.  

Directly Linking Pictures is BANDWIDTH THEFT.  Don't do it again.  This is your only warning.

They changed it because the cord can easily pop out of the link port. The current design locks the cord in place.

Actually, that connection is from the spaceworld (or E3?) where they announced Gamecube and GBA.  As you can see from the window on the Gamecube's disc door, and the GBA's colors, the system's weren't fine-tuned yet.  The big grey chunk was definately added when Nintendo realized that the cord would easily pop out and ruin a GBA/GCN connection.  If you don't own one, all the connector does with the extra bulk is hook into the top of the GBA.  
Always do what you are afraid to do.
