[2D] Unable to create 2D Objects in the Hierarchy for all the Templates except 2D Template



If "2D common" package is not installed in the unity editor then 2D Objects can not be created in all templates. However, in 2D Template 2D Objects can be created without the 2D Common or Core packages are being installed, refer attached video.

Steps to repro:
1. Create a new project with 3D Template
2. Hierarchy > Create > 2D Objects

Actual Result:
Unable to create 2D Object in Hierarchy

Expected Result:
2D Objects are created gracefully

Workaround: 2D objects are created in the Hierarchy if "2D Common" package is installed in the package manager

Occurring in:

Working fine in:
2020.2.0a14, 2020.1.0b12

Windows10 and macOS 10.14

  1. Resolution Note (2020.2.X):

    This is by design where in 20.2, 2D related GameObjects and Assets will only be able to be created when the appropriate packages are installed
