Or I'll have to deal with the black bars to the side?

Ummm... That's protecting the aspect ratio, so no.

I remember in the gba you could change the aspect ratio so I had to ask. Well, thanks anyway.

The reason why the DS games need to maintain their aspect ratio (not that anyone asked, just felt like pointing it out) is that there are a few DS games in which the two screens act like one giant, long screen. Imagine a picture of a flagpole that spans both screens off to the side on a DS. If you were to change the aspect ratio so that both screens were completely filled, said flagpole would appear to be two different objects, causing disorientation to the viewer.

I have never thought about it this way. Now the none aspect ratio changing decision makes a lot more sense!

Well, you know, you could just chose if you want to change the aspect ratio or not. But it's not that bad, once you start playing it you barely notice it =)

Honestly, with the glossy black bezel around the top of the screen anyway it makes those black bars hardly noticeable at all during game play. I think they went with the best available option.
