MegaHexes are a central part of the 'feel' of TFT to me, but they are used for so little in actual play.

I did a quick Campaign Cartographer comparison of a small room with MegaHexes and one with SquareHexes just to see what visible impact it had.

I don't know where my door between the room and corridor went.... but since these were demos, I didn't care to investigate.

While non-traditional, the Square Megahexes seem to work pretty well and are almost un-noticeably different.

One thing I've been playing with is buying HeroicMaps maps from DriveThru, loading them into Campaign Cartographer, and laying a MegaHex grid over them. I haven't tried printing them out because, well, I don't have a campaign going yet, but I may have to set up a SquareHex template for them to see how that looks.
