How can I view a full-quality orthographic view?

Is there a way to get the editor to display an orthographic view with the full render quality of the final game?
When I switch to an orthographic view and set the render mode to '“lit” it does not give me the full quality I get from a perspective view. It may claim to be lit, but I see no real lighting on my scene. I don’t see shadows, and there’s just a general lack of quality on the textures. That last bit might just be my imagination, or some other quirk of it not rendering the full lighting.
