Where Do Gamers Draw the Line Between Creator and Creation?

Where do we draw the line? Consider the Dragon Quest series: The great-granddaddy of console role-playing games, Dragon Quest has defined the baseline for the genre and exerted a tremendous impact on pop culture at large for more than a quarter of a decade. Yet the man responsible for the series' memorable music since the very beginning, composer Koichi Sugiyama, is an avowed Japanese nationalist who denies his nation's World War II-era crimes in China and Korea. Sugiyama published a paid advertisement in the Washington Post disavowing Japanese war actions including the Rape of Nanking and the use of "comfort women." Does that mean gamers should abandon the Dragon Quest series?
