I think it's good to realize that if a player recognizes that their decisions are parelleling something in real life, they will have more meaning. That said, I think she's way behind the times if she just realized that games could be about more than fun. Also, it's selfish of her not to let Train be distributed if it really is such a meaningful game. Imagine a toy company reproducing it and putting it in schools for when kids are learning about the holocaust. I'd say she has a moral obligation to let that happen. But instead she just went with her gut feeling and decided it was just her own special project.
