Is it bad to have too many of them in a game with a serious story?

It *may* break immersion if it is really out of place.

But considering Easter Eggs are searched for by players, they probably won't be bothered.

Unless they are too easy to find and the more "serious" player might find it odd.

As long as they are subtle, include as many as you'd like.  Good examples to check out would be the Metal Gear Solid games, especially Twin Snakes and Snake Eater.
