For example, if I complete my degree in Politics, and choose almost entirely political theory modules, do my dissertation in political theory, and only pass foundational modules in say, development studies in my first year, can I still apply and be admitted to an MA/MSc in Development Studies? Or do universities assess you based on your module choices and where you are most adept? In other words, is it enough to have a degree in politics or is it necessary to choose modules relevant to your postgrad?

You would almost certainly be fine but I would check the entry requirements of the course. If they wanted you to study development studies related modules before starting the masters then they will state it.
