Range and direction of the Light component are not shown in the Game view when Gizmos are toggled on

Scene/Game View

-

How to reproduce:
1. Open the attached "GizmoGameView" project
2. Open the "SampleScene" Scene
3. Make sure that Gizmos are toggled on in the Game view
4. In the Hierarchy select "Directional Light" GameObject

Expected result: Range and direction of the "Directional Light" GameObject are visible in the Game view
Actual result: Range and direction of the "Directional Light" GameObject are not visible in the Game view

Reproducible with: 2018.1.0a1, 2018.4.24f1, 2019.4.1f1, 2020.1.0b14, 2020.2.0a15
Not reproducible with: 2017.4.40f1

Note: Reflection Probe is the only Light component which range is visible in the Game view when selected

    Resolution Note:

    Handles drawn through OnSceneGUI are by design not drawn in the Game View. MonoBehaviour components are able to register a callback in managed code to override the gizmo drawing, however Light is a native component.

    As far as gizmos are concerned, this is working as designed. It would be preferable to move gizmo drawing (for both Scene and Game views) into Editor code, which would avoid this issue and allow inheriting Editor classes to override gizmo drawing. Work is scheduled within SRP and Scene Tooling to add this functionality.
