Modular versus non-modular

If things can be built in say 10 tonne lumps and assembled in space then a number of "smaller" and cheaper launchers makes sense.

But are there things that might want to be put in orbit that can't be modular (because eg either the underlying structure is too big, or assembly in orbit isn't practical because of the complexity)?
