I think your wrong Axeman. Just because you identify with animal icons as a sporting mascot, doesn't mean another culture won't see them as being an important symbol for their country.There is nothing inherently wrong with a nipple being seen on TV, however its taboo in the American culture, so it becomes a morality issue to them. Personally, I wouldn't think a nipple on TV is a morality issue, as it doesn't offend my morals. Likewise, the use of an animal that the Chinese seem to base a lot of their national identity on in a video game could be seen as being incredibly tasteless or even an insult. In the same vein, I could see it being made an issue by a small group of people if they made a race that looked like American bald eagles (a race like that would be ridiculously lame).It also happens the Chinese government exerts a lot more control over their public than the American public.
