Did Mickey Mouse Screw Donald Duck Out Of The Lead Role In Kingdom Hearts?

It's no secret that Disney's Mickey Mouse has been shafting Donald Duck for decades. I never understood the rodent's motivation, but time and time again he's swerved his fowl friend. In a recent interview with Famitsu (translated by 1Up), Square Enix director Tetsuya Nomura revealed that Disney wanted to cast Donald Duck as the leading character for the project that eventually became Kingdom Hearts.

"Square wanted to make a game starring Mickey Mouse, and Disney wanted a Donald Duck title. Meanwhile, I wanted neither. So I built a project plan for KH and began negotiating with both sides. That plan was largely what you see now; a game featuring lots of characters without focusing on any particular one."
 
After being regulated to second-string status in movies and television, video games could have been the medium that allowed Donald to have the spotlight all to himself. Instead, Mr. Mouse shafted him once again. What a rat bastard.
 
In your mind, would Donald Duck have worked as a lead in a Square Enix action RPG? Any other Disney characters work in that role?
