Five- (and more) sided polygons cause all sorts of problems down the road. The issue is in the tessellation process. When the 3D software (or game engine, like Unity) converts a 3D form into all tris (which it must for the video cards to draw them), there are some shapes that are easier to tessellate. 4). However, the tessellation of the n-gon is often unpredictable, especially from a game asset creation standpoint. 5). 4 Tessellating a quad is pretty straightforward. Just split it corner to corner to create two tris.

It then offsets each of those segments over a given width and softens these new edges to give the corner a rounded look. It's a sort of corner-softener tool. The default 32 Asset Creation: Maya Scenography Modeling setting of 1 segment creates a hard edge bevel. Generally, I find that three segments rounds the edges with a noticeable result, but keeps the number of polys manageable. Applying a bevel to edges helps get rid of that exactness that computers are so good at creating. It helps the surface feel like it's been standing there for a while when the edges of the form aren't razor sharp.
