You know, effect size is pretty regularly employed, if not by the individuals conducting the research, then by reviewers, but that doesn't mean that a paper with a small effect size won't get published, and that people won't make too much out of it because they don't consider effect sizes.

Interestingly, in most of the social sciences, calculating power is routine, and in order to calculate power, you have to have some estimate of effect size. So, before studies are conducted, they have some idea about what effect size to expect.
