He made the software unique.

If the 'made' in bold was replaced with 'created' as:

He created the software unique.

would it still sound OK?

Taka... He created the software unique. would it still sound OK?
No. It sounds wrong.

Yes. Do you know why that is an exception?

Are you going to say that these English are wrong?

You have provided some examples of very sloppy English. I had to read them several times before I finally figured out what they were trying to say. I'm not enough of a grammar expert to pronounce judgment on their correctness; however, even if they are not technically wrong they certainly don't reflect well on their owners.

Taking off from an idea born in December 2007, founder Emily wanted to avoid buying her niece and nephew the usual “plastic - batteries not included” so decided to use her passion for art and crafting to create them unique and beautiful gifts instead.

What I have in hand is this:

Americans tend to believe that government can safely serve only one purpose: to create conditions favorable to the protection of the freedom of the individual.

So you think it should rather be something like this?

Americans tend to believe that government can safely serve only one purpose: to create favorable conditions to the protection of the freedom of the individual.
I guess I prefer the first but I don't have any problems with either one.
Well, one small problem (not related to the use of "create"). I would probably say "...conditions for the..."

I'm afraid I don't have the grammar expertise to explain why "create" is used (and misused) as it is. Perhaps someone else can jump in with the grammar of the situation.

This is not a sentence. It appears to be a bullet point in a company's advertisement. Never look at marketing materials as a source for good grammar. They are trying to send a message in as few letters as possible because each letter costs money.

The second entry also seems to be from advertising and has idiomatic errors. The phrase is 'make them unique'. The act of creation implies uniqueness. We would never say 'create them unique'. And why on Earth would you want to freeze a monitor? It sounds like a frozen computer and that is never good.

It reminds me of a sign in Hungary, "In case of fire, go to window and expose yourself."
