personally I don't mind the bump down to the teen rating b/c the first PoP game Sands of time was a teen rated game and is considered by a lot of people to be the best game in the series. I was disappointed w/ the second game Warrior Within b/c it went to the M rating and threw in a bunch of gore, sexual stuff, and crappy death metal in order to get there. I mean one of the cutscenes had long close up of the evil chick's butt, which was stupid. Don't get me wrong, I liked cutting guys heads off but a lot of the other stuff was j/ dumb. Just keep solid fun gameplay, good controls, and good story and that is all you need. And don't worry about nintendo's kiddy image me and Cam talk about them losing it on ep3 of the show.
