The game does seem pretty interesting, surprised I’ve never heard of it before. Regarding the morality aspect of it though, I can understand challenging the classic murder hobo stereotype associated with RPGs in general, but I don’t feel it entirely applies to Zelda itself. There are plenty of instances of Link having friendly interactions with the monsters that aren’t hostile to him, like the “It’s a secret to everybody” moblin and the other monster you bribe with meat in Zelda 1, the Zora you buy the flippers from in LttP, and a few similar instances in LA which also predates this game. Later games would push this more with a greater emphasis on non human races, most notably Majora’s Mask, but those obviously come after this game.
