Asset Editor (dark mode)

See attached screenshot:

I see the following problems:

1. There are clearly parts of the asset editor that are not "dark mode" enabled. Like the search area or the main section.
2. Readability issues with the side bar. As you can see AppIcons and LaunchImages texts are black on a black background.
3. Readability issues with the main section. The name of the individual assets (iPad Pro App, iPhone, iPhone Spotlight, etc...) are light gray on a white background. Same for the size at the center of the cells.

I don't know how big of an effort it is to make the entire asset editor play well with dark mode but if it turns out to be a long term effort, maybe we should just disable its dark mode support and have this section rendered like it is on light mode to avoid the readability issues.

Tested with the following environment: https://gist.github.com/VincentDondain/9e54ad828c6bdb771488112a55412cb0
