One big consideration to using large tile in a shower is whether they are slippery when wet. One of major reasons smaller tile is used (other than the fact it's easier to fit them to a typical bowl-shaped shower) is that the extra grout joints provide more grip when standing in there with water running and soap, shampoo, conditioners, etc. are draining away. While larger format tile can work well in a linear shower, not great if you fall flat on your back in the process.
