The sheer number of sales Mario's face can wield would drive weak men to make greedy and stupid decisions. Changing a game's iconic style or selling the rights out the other companies also have their consequences. It may not hurt the gamers overall feeling toward the brand, but I'm sure Miyamoto gives himself a facepalm every time someone mentions "Hotel Mario".
*Disclaimer: the following games may not all necessarily be "bad" by your standards, they are simply games from popular franchises that many people have expressed hate towards, some caused by sheer frustration (mainly in the cases of Zelda II and Mega Man X7)."
