Titles from the Alien franchise are an interesting case study for this as well, as they permutate through different wideness/condensedness qualities (letter wideness vs. letter spacing, etc.). Interestingly enough, the further a font diverges from a "nondescript standard sans serif" design, the more my brain finds it ok if the letters are really wide (because it is more convinced that professionals were at work? that more manual labor and love went into crafting the glyphs? xD fascninating.)
