Default The View State Issue

On page 292 of your book you state:
"Removing the check for Page.IsPostback is enough to accomplish this. However this is not always the desired solution. Imagine that you are getting correct display direction from a database. Because the number of times that you hit a database can be a costly operation, you want to minimize the number of times that you hit the database."

My question to you would be is not Viewstate a pricely and cumbersome overhead to the overall footprint of the application as well? Can Viewstate not also have a tendency to gum up the works so to speak on any .NET application?

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
