Avoiding subjective topics in meetings

Often, when dealing with clients, they love to discuss subjective
topics that have no validity, because they have no empirical
evidence. These could easily be obviated with usability studies, but
very often, clients do not want to these studies. Also, time with
clients is limited, so meetings are wasted on useless discussion and
not important decisions.

These topics can often include: colors, toolbar/button placement,
logo placement, transitions, etc.

Does anyone know of good "best practice" methods to avoid this
waste of time.
