I've worked on a few big applications in vanilla CSS and while I wouldn't be able to say how it would have turned out with SASS, I didn't really have a problem building it.
Obviously YMMV but I think the approach to take is having clean and concise CSS, broken apart in separate files where it makes sense. This can be achieved without needing something like SASS.
