Using the hardware hack described here and the new 9.5mm slot-in Matshita UJ-167, it is finally possible to have a Mac Mini 2011 HTPC including an internal Blu-ray drive (or even a burner, with the UJ-267).
And using MacGo Blu-ray Player For Mac, you can even view Blu-ray movies on your Mac...
But considering the ridiculous price for the burner ($400), most people are likely to opt for an external (much cheaper) drive.

nice. I just question how many people need or want it. I ended up just using a slim external USB BR burner. It just sits on top of the Mini.
