This is due to EU rules not allowing pressure for not making a choice that costs money. Guessing there's DLC for this game, and the DLC sidequests are what are restricted from having bad choices. This is the same reason why Nintendo never released Rusty's Real Deal Baseball in EU, because it has him be sad if you choose not to buy the mini-games. Same reason why the Streetpass DLC bunny is not sad when you choose to not buy the DLC like he's sad in the U.S. version.
tl; dr This is standard practice for DLC sidequests in EU. If it affects regular sidequests, too, then blame Nintendo for changing more than they needed to.
