I guess I should've prefaced this does so without installing third party applications and/or butchering the intended experience

Does this load straight to desktop even if you left no explorer windows open at startup? If so, brilliant! Much better than having to install a 3rd party addon.

I don't think so - I'll try right now and check.

Just thought I'd chime in; I hear everyone complaining about this all the time, even though it's no big deal as whatever program you're starting is likely going to be on the start screen anyway. . .but people want to start Windows 8 on the desktop rather than on the start screen.
I noticed since the CP (perhaps even DP) if you leave a Windows Explorer window open and change your settings to Restore previous folder windows at log-on you will start at the desktop (with your open Windows Explorer window) I haven't bothered trying but maybe this works for items in the automatic startup with interactive windows *shrug*

Tried this on my RTM installation of Pro -- does not work. Note -- I do not care where my system boots - just tried this for educational purposes.

You sure you left an explorer window open? I don't really mind where it opens either but it's a byproduct of me wanting my folder of currently-watching TV series open on boot.
Mine's also a clean install of RTM (en-GB) Pro. Literally installed it yesterday on the desktop.

Dirty, but it works
