ppt was designed for graphical presentations, not creation of images. Unless you are giving an in depth presentation on certian states and they need to stand out/be animated.

One option in Powerpoint 2007 that I found yesterday is to select a shape, right-click on it and select format picture, select fill, then picture or texture fill, then clip art. Choose a line or dot or even one of the pictures and click on OK. Select tile picture as texture, then change the Y scale to 50% or less. This creates a series of lines or dots or pictures that fills the shape. You can get additional somewhat pleasing results by also checking mirror type as horizontal (seems to work best), vertical, or both. However, this seems pretty cumbersome compared to Powerpoint 2003.
